When travelling alone in an unknown urban area, pedestrians are exposed to a higher risk of accident or assault. In light of this growing concern, we propose that safety annotation to be included as one of the pedestrian map attributes and using it to recommend a relatively safer route. Unlike motorist map, pedestrian map must also include pedestrian-oriented features and noticeable landmarks in order to optimize the path. This paper presents the techniques to determine relatively safe path, its future works and challenges.
