Its a great tool, but it still has a lot of flaws. I’ve noticed for example, it counts karate schools as “schools” and counts convenience stores as “grocery”. You can always adjust to skip those kinds of errors, but many people that just look at the raw score may be misled.
It also doesn’t take into account actual pedestrian access, only looking at distance. Things like busy car-filled streets, freeways, ravines, grade changes, lack of sidewalks.
But overall, it can give you a rough guide of how far you will have to travel for most of your amenities.
