Abstract

Neighborhood infrastructure, such as sidewalks, medical facilities, public transit, community gathering places, and tree canopy, provides essential support for safe, healthy, and
resilient communities. This thesis proposes, develops, and implements an innovative approach to thoroughly examine the presence and condition of neighborhood infrastructure.
It demonstrates the necessity of considering multiple infrastructure types when studying
neighborhood infrastructure and its equity. This thesis provides an automated assessment
framework as well as case studies among four major metropolitan cities across the United
States, which expands the research opportunities for future infrastructure-related research.
