The street maps listed on the following menu show streets in major cities in the USA and around the world.
Today's urban street designers realize how much well-designed streets contribute to a city's public life. Rather than just being an artery for traffic to flow through, these newly-designed streets provide safe access to shopping, work, walking, and bicycling. They improve home values and parking as well. Communities are gradually reintroducing street areas that can be used as playgrounds, front yards, and sidewalk dining. Cities are using street markings, planters, and other low-cost materials to quickly lay out projects in already-built environments.
Safety—for both young and old—is paramount in street design. The designers must provide conditions for smooth operation of varied types of transportation as well as safe pedestrian access. With safety in mind, 3-D street maps have been developed to help the blind learn to negotiate busy intersections. This mapping technology uses a 3-D printer that creates raised surfaces and different textures to indicate streets, landscaping, and sidewalks. Touching the map helps visually impaired users to understand street and intersection layouts.
