Berlin Sidewalk Widths

As part of the pandemic-driven social distancing guidelines, people have been advised to keep at least 1.5 meters distance from each other. That can sometimes be difficult, especially where pedestrian walkways are narrow. ODIS has developed a map application that shows how Berlin’s neighborhoods differ from each other in terms of sidewalk infrastructure and which streets may make it difficult to maintain a minimum distance of 1.5 meters from others. This visualization of sidewalk widths is based on data on sidewalk locations from a 2014 street survey dataset published by the Berlin Senate Department for the En- vironment, Transport and Climate.
