OSM in UrbanFootprint: Combining walk network with transit schedule data for non-auto-based accessibility measures

We discuss how UrbanFootprint utilizes open source tools to intake transit schedule data by converting it to a directed network graph and then tethering it to OSM walk network data on-the-fly in order to generate project-specific, combined walk and transit networks. Additionally, we demonstrate disaggregation patterns for other spatial data layers that allow us to more accurately model accessibility to features such as park acreage.
