Pedestrian Wayfinding Signs
Pedestrian wayfinding signs are a system of signage and markers which help pedestrians navigate on foot through a densely populated urban area. This system is designed to guide visitors and residents alike to prominent destinations, whether it be a specific building, public space, or landmark. The City of Edmonton’s pedestrian wayfinding program provides wayfinding maps within a 5-minute walking distance. Wayfinding signage was placed at strategically selected locations to provide guidance at the highest foot traffic locations.
The downtown pedestrian wayfinding includes street signs, directional signs, static map kiosks, ETS beacons and other forms of signage that indicate the location of key features and amenities within the geographic area. The wayfinding system incorporates elements such as colour-coded directional arrows, symbols, and landmarks to make it easier for people to orient themselves and find their way.
The goal of pedestrian wayfinding is to improve the overall experience of navigating the city on foot, making it easier and more intuitive for people to get where they need to go. Ultimately, this helps to support the vitality of the downtown area, promoting economic growth and encouraging people to explore and engage with the community.
