Walk Score

Found this on Kevin Rose’s blog, thought I would pass along the link.

I found it interesting to see how people interpret location data. With the advent of GPS for example, we don’t see many other services other than mapping.

I did hear on the radio the other day, however, that you can now buy this guided city tour that comes preloaded with information about the area you are in, and as you tour around it will tell you the interesting points and stops right around where you are located.

    I believe that walk score is cool, but nowadays more and more people prefer to drive cars. Homes are often located in an area where some establishments are easier to get to by car than on foot. I’ve recently found a type of service on drivescore.fizber.com which is called Drive Score. It shows a map of what establishments are in your neighborhood and calculates a Drive Score based on the number of places within a convenient driving distance. It doesn’t mean that drive score is better than walk score – they are equal and both necessary in the modern world!

    The site looks okay.. a little slow loading.

    The major problem that I had with it is no info for Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
