Walking network

The walking network differs from the road network as it includes network edges where pedestrians can use links that are not alongside roads. This includes walking paths through conservation areas, parks, schools and other off-road short cuts frequently taken by pedestrians.

First, a base walking network was created from street centreline data using an automated process (described in section 14.3.1). Once the base walking network was developed, careful editing was undertaken to improve the resolution of the model, adding off-road walking links and increasing the level of detail in areas such as the CBD and suburban centres that have high pedestrian traffic volumes (refer to section 14.3.2).
