Slow Streets sets out to provide research based evidence for the benefits from redefining and redesigning our streets. Slow Streets research consists of observing and documenting public life using mapping, counting, tracking, photos and videos. Slow Streets strives to visualize socioeconomic and built environment data in innovative ways using infographics or mapping software.
Our overall intent is to produce a two level open data resource, first with scientifically produced research and documentation usable for practicing professionals, advocacy agencies, governments and educational facilities. The second level involves producing articles, infographics, videos and photo journals to reach out to the general public and raise awareness of street design issues and the potential solutions.
