(Para)metric Evaluation of Walkability, Diversity and Density in Low-income Neighborhoods Using the CityMetrics toolbox

Lima, Fernando; Vallone, Luiza; Costa, Carlos Frederico; Rosa, Ashiley;

Article:

This paper describes an implementation of the CityMetrics toolbox, in order toprovide a dynamic assessment of metrics related to walkability, diversity anddensity in remote and low-income urban areas. The applied methodology wasused in two remote neighborhoods of Juiz de Fora, which is a Brazilian city, in acase study. The objective was to identify and to evaluate a set of weaknesses inthe addressed areas and to propose some improvements in the neighborhoods´arrangements. The ultimate goal is to contribute to a better understanding ofurban problems according to walkability, diversity and density, as well as tocontribute to the discussion on the design and implementation of low-income realestate developments, facilitating the management of solutions in urban planningprocesses in this context
