Walkable Communities, Inc. has a new
service. Many people have asked for photo and graphics assistance
for publications, training and other visual and design needs.
Our new service gives you access to the best of the photos
and graphics Dan Burden uses in his popular training courses.
If you need help bringing alive a great brochure, report,
proposal, or simply need to show a local council or commission
the possibilities and that your design has already been built
elsewhere, we can help. Our topics cover traditional transportation,
alternative transportation, quality of life, community development,
main street development, urban infill, new urbanism and related
issues, we now stock an abundance of graphic aids. You can
download from our web page up to 20 images free. But, if you
wish to stock anywhere from 160 to 1200 of our best, most
up-to-date images, you can now purchase your own set. Our
images are packaged by major theme, such as traffic calming
and roundabouts, bicycle facilities, etc.
What are your publishing rights? You are entitled to unlimited
publishing and training use of all images. However, you are not
entitled to re-sell our images, or to use them to promote a product.
