This application is provided by NYC Department of Transportation (DOT).
DOT promotes the use of sustainable modes of transportation. DOT's mission is to provide for the safe, efficient, and environmentally responsible movement of people and goods in the City of New York.
DOT installed ‘wayfinding’ signs on sidewalks in Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens as part of a citywide system that is rolled out in phases. The sidewalk signage shows pedestrians where they are and which way they are facing. Transit, local attractions, and businesses are placed on a large map of the local street grid with circles indicating where you can reach with a five minute walk, and how long it will take to get to other attractions.
This digital wayfinding project complements the signage based wayfinding system. The project is geared towards new yorker's or people visiting NYC with smartphones or internet capable devices. The WayFinding app is a multi-platform (web & mobile) tool that suggests sights & scenes, arrival time for mass transit (bus, trains) and upcoming events within a walking distance & time range.
To contact us, please email us at GIS@dot.nyc.gov. Please visit http://nyc.gov/walknyc for more information on the street signage based wayfinding project.
