How can online mapping services better engage pedesterians with their city, beyond offering the shortest route?

An ongoing research aiming to enhance the pedestrian walking experience in urban environments by suggesting alternative navigation routes on mobile maps. Using buildings data, weather information, and other urban metrics, an algorithm generates several routes between two given points. In addition to the shortest route, the user has the option to choose the most scenic, most shaded, or the safest route for example.

 

Off the beaten tracks

Take me to a grocery via the most interesting route, please.
