GSA Smart Location Calculator

About This Report

The Smart Location Calculator is a simple tool for exploring how workplace location affects worker commute travel. Indicators include worker commute greenhouse gas emissions, mode-share, vehicle miles traveled, and workplace accessibility via transit. The data and research behind this tool, as well as a user guide, are available in the Resources section at the bottom of the page.

The Calculator provides a Smart Location Index (SLI), which ranges in value from 0-100, where 0 indicates the least location efficient site in the region, and 100 indicates the most location efficient site. These scores are relative to the region, and should not be compared across regions.
