The relationship between the built environment and travel behavior is well-documented. However, inferring general conclusions from different studies remains a challenge. Zegras points out to several of these challenges: scales of analysis differ, built environment measures vary, the travel behavior data used varies, control variables employed differ and the ultimate outcomes measured are different. This study contributes to previous work by evaluating the usage of a global points of interest database to calculate destination diversity and quality, and combining this with network distances routed on OpenStreetMap networks. Subsequently, the effect of both the diversity and number of destinations on the choice to walk is evaluated by means of a diversity and a destination index decomposed by destination category for both Singapore and Switzerland, making it possible to use the same scales of analysis and built environment measures for both countries Show more
