We have a renovation project in downtown Pittsburgh and trying to complete documents to achieve LEED v4.1 ID+C rating system.

By just a look in the downtown Pittsburgh (which is a high dense area), it can be inferred that each of both paths of option 1 is qualified for this credit, but NO information for actual buildings' Floor Area and/or total number of dwelling unit counts within the 1/4 mile from project boundary are available (nor can be collected as it will a huge task!), hence, calculation cannot be made.  

Is there anyway around, e.g. by submitting photos of the area and a narrative explaining the situation, to earn this credit?

Thank you,
