WalkNYC Pedestrian Wayfinding

Merit Award 2016
WalkNYC Pedestrian Wayfinding

Finding one’s way through the streets of New York when coming up out of the subway or walking through an unfamiliar neighborhood can be confusing, even for the most seasoned New Yorker. WalkNYC is a new program of pedestrian maps that makes it easier for New York’s 8.5 million residents and 50 million yearly visitors to navigate the city streets.

Interconnect with City ID

Interconnect Birmingham

User-centered information systems can improve the journey experience.

The way people are able to move around a city directly impacts their everyday experiences of it. And making the city more legible and easier to navigate can create major social, environmental, and economic benefits. That's the central concept behind City ID’s work on a new urban information system for Birmingham, UK, and other cities around the world.
