UNSW Study - Perceptions of Walkability in Sydney

Welcome to the UNSW Sydney Walkability study.

This survey contains questions about your regular travel modes, approximate home location, and age, then 4 questions on different aspects of walkability in Greater Sydney. For these questions you have the option of providing text feedback and mapped feedback.

To create maps of perceived walkability, we are trying a 'spraycan' approach to capture imprecise knowledge about places. In the following questions, rather than selecting specific points, you will use an airbrush tool to convey general perceptions about broad areas of the city.

The interface works on mobile phones but is easier to use on a computer. Using a computer or large tablet is recommended.

How to use the mapping interface:
1. On each map there is a 'turn spraycan on' button in the top right, to turn the spraycan on or off.
2. To make your 'spraypaint' area bigger or smaller, zoom in or out of the map.
3. Fill in any text comments, select 'Submit and Next Question' and your map markings and comments will be automatically saved.

All data is anonymous; no information is collected about you apart from your responses to the demographic questions on the next page, which all have the option of providing no answer.
This research is covered under ethics approval HC190783.
