Join the Maryland Department of Planning and the Smart Growth Network to learn about recent updates to the Smart Location Database and National Walkability Index and how these tools can be used in planning.
The Smart Location Database is a nationwide data resource for measuring location efficiency. It includes more than 90 attributes summarizing characteristics such as housing density, diversity of land use, neighborhood design, employment, and demographics.
The National Walkability Index is a geographic data resource that ranks block groups according to their relative walkability. The dataset includes walkability scores for all block groups as well as the underlying attributes that are used to rank them.
