Pedestrian directions now available on Google maps

August 6, 2008

So, for instance, suppose I want to get some of that free land in Marquette, Kansas, but I don’t have a car or bicycle.  Google will provide directions, a total of 314 segments for the 766-mile trip.  Google estimates it’ll take me 10 days and 10 hours, which works out to just over 3 miles per hour.  I guess they assume I sleepwalk, but take breaks occasionally. I don’t imagine their database worries about whether there are sidewalks, but they do say “Walking directions are in beta. Use caution when walking in unfamiliar areas.”
