Walking cities and Urban Walking Maps

Walking around is most natural for humans, good exercise and environmental. The walking cities concept is at the forefront of urban development.

One place to start is to create a walking map of the area.

We project manage and produce a range of urban walking maps. Walking is the natural way to move about, it promotes health and reduces fossil fuel transport. These maps help support communities’ health and environmental development.
