Using Street View Imagery and Computer Vision Method for Visual Walkability Measurement in London

Lu, Jiaming; Haworth, James; Wang, Meihui

Walking, as a friendly mode of transport, also contributes to physical and psychological well-being. However, since the 20 th century, the rapid development of modern road networks and urban architecture has led to degradation in the quality of walking environments in major cities such as London. This research aims to evaluate the Integrated Visual Walkability (IVW) index in Inner London, reflecting pedestrians’ walking experiences, and analyze the outcomes in consideration of the physical environment. The results contribute to develop strategies for London walkability optimization and improve upon the urban planning, and subsequently encourage people to walk more.
