How to use SR4S for your Mobility Snapshot

If you are an iRAP SR4S user, you can use the SR4S app to do your Mobility Snapshot even if it is not in a school zone. Follow these steps to ensure it is marked as a Mobility Snapshot:

  1. Email us at to let us know you are using SR4S for your Mobility Snapshot.
  2. When you establish the SR4S project for your Mobility Snapshot, set the name to SR Mobility Snapshot 2024 – Name of the city/area where you conduct the assessments.
  3. Add the intersection location in the schools section.
  4. When adding attributes for the assessed intersection:
    • Record the attributes for the main road, except where specific attributes are requested for the side road, for example “crossing side road”; “intersection side flow”.
    • In the comment section, please note the number of pedestrians using the intersection per hour during peak time using the following calculation:
      • Count the pedestrians around the intersection (crossing and walking along the main and side roads) for 15 minutes during peak time. Please multiply your count by 4 to get the number of pedestrians in peak hour and enter that number. For example, if there are 112 pedestrians in 15 minutes, then 112 x 4 = 448.
    • Upload at least six photos using the following guidelines:
      • Take at least four high resolution photos in good lighting conditions.
      • This should include at least two portrait pictures and two landscape pictures of the whole intersection.
      • Photos should capture the main features of the intersection, sidewalks and crossings, and any other particular issues you noticed.
      • If possible, capture pictures from an elevated position (such as a pedestrian bridge or building) as this provides a better perspective.
      • Make sure the pictures cover all ‘legs’ of the intersection, so the whole road and roadsides are visible.
      • Include key areas where improvements could be made.
