  1. hi

    our walkscore stopped working a day or so ago, did anything change that requires an update on the api or code we use?

  2. Nice. I have long been a fan and user of your service, and your tools keep getting better.

    I am excited about your service which I just stumbled over. It could be a tremendous tool for urban planning. Unfortunately inaccuracies are obvious once one goes into detail. Some mistakes that I observe frequently are missing parks and trails (not sure bike/pedestrian trails are included at all) and dubious grocery stores (e. g. Fayetteville AR, only two of seven listed are actually grocery stores and some others are missing). What is your plan for validating and correcting your data? I think it should be made easier for the community to submit corrections but I also wonder whether you are willing to dedicate the resources necessary for tracking and validating those submissions. If this doesn’t happen, unfortunately walkscore will be of limited use. What do you say?

    The walk score for 783 School Dr. 98230 is very incorrect.
    It does not know what I am close to.
    It thinks the closest grocery store is miles away (it’s about .5 mile) It doesn’t know the distance to the Blaine post office, city hall, the nearest coffee shops or restaurants or hardware store. It thinks they are all in Canada!!!!!
    Please work with Google to fix this.
    Get back to me.

    Not at all accurate for my neighborhood, South Lamar, in Austin TX. As many as one half of the businesses do not show up on the map. Some have been here for 10 or more years, so it’s obviously not map data that is the criteria for inclusion.
