Avenue of Technology is a city designated technology-based district[1] on a segment of Market Street in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The area is known for being the "portal of technology" of the city that includes the University City Science Center and Drexel University. The area was originally dedicated by the mayor Ed Rendell with street plates acknowledging this section of road with turquoise signs.[2]

In May of 2014, a project with Google Earth will document the mobility in the region.[3][4]
