Help OpenPlans Find What Makes a Street Beautiful

Is your street beautiful? What makes it so – is it a landscaped median, wide sidewalks, or perhaps a green bike lane? Is it possible that a few specific elements are all that separate a beautiful street from less desirable ones?

The totally rad folks at OpenPlans are trying to answer these questions. The non-profit org, whose mission is to promote sustainable mobility with new technology and open data, launched on Valentine’s Day – the site presents users with photos of two streets and asks one simple question: which is more beautiful? All data collected will be publicly available online for anyone to download and parse. [Atlantic Cities]
