This library finds the most nature-filled walks/paths that one can take throughout the day in order to stimulate creativity and boost mental health.
Path-finding is performed via Weighted Graph computation, with weights being given for characteristics such as proximity to parks, and amount of nature in the field of view
The module aggregates the individual pieces which we use to calculate our “nature score”, and exposes the members publicly. The user can either use our pre-built path-finding algorithms, or use the individual pieces which make up our score to design and curate their own version of the “nature score”.
Our module was not only developed as an open-source project, but is also being maintained as an open-source project with the support of NBBJ. As part of our continued development, we are hosting the package on npm and it is available for download/install from any machine using Node.js. Going forward, we’ll be working on optimizing the core functionality as well as adding new features.
