Alan Jacobs' book, 'Great Streets', catalogs the qualities and quantities that characterize excellent streets around the world. The Jake-O-Meter provides aspiring streetscape designers with a collection of exemplar streets and their properties. Cast as an interactive game backed by a database, the Jake-O-Meter is intended for use both in practical design and as a pedagogical tool.
