Exerpt from the introduction — Pavement to Parks started in 2009 and is a relatively new program. Its projects are new concepts for cities, for which there are many basic unanswered questions. While there have already been great reports on parklets, for example the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition’s Great Streets Parklet Studies (2010) or the Spring Street Parklet Impact Study (2013) in Los Angeles, none have focused on geospatial analysis (GIS) as a method of studying parklets… a geospatial study can be an effective supplementary tool that can help clarify and answer questions related to geographic equity and access.
