Walk Times

With more people moving into urban developments, it would be helpful to allow analysts to measure customers within a "walking distance". Similar to drive time analysis, a step up would be to incorporate "walk time" analysis.

Hi @nsabree6,

 

If you have a current need for walking directions/times, perhaps you might want to use the DOWNLOAD tool and access a service like Google.  Their API can be used to calculate walking distances and routes.  The API is fairly straight forward and you could prototype or go to production quickly using Alteyrx.  I haven't checked other APIs out in this space, but am confident that a solution could be at-hand quickly if you need it.

 

Cheers,

Mark
