Georgia Pedestrian & Streetscape Guide

Georgia Department of Transportation

The guide supplies an interesting spatial analysis, diagramming the space needs for different types of pedestrians -- adults, children, elders, and those with disabilities. It discusses ways to prioritize projects using Geographic Information Systems (GIS), referencing the Latent Demand Model and Portland, OR's Pedestrian Potential Index. The bulk of the guide exists in several toolkits, each devoted to different subjects. The toolkits begin with general design guidelines and move into more specific topics such as accessibility, school zones, trails and paths, sidewalks, crossings, etc. Detailed facility diagrams provide useful technical information for other agencies and localities. Each chapter is available for download separately at the web address listed below.
