What is AMP?

The Accessibility Mapping Project (AMP) at the University of Pennsylvania is a digital interface for mapping the emergence of physical and social barriers at Penn.

Initiated by Mark Bookman (GAPSA, Chair for Equity and Access) during the fall of 2017, the AMP uses crowdsourced data to illustrate both existing and desired features of access on campus in real-time.

Users may upload pictures, audio, and text that illustrate their personal experiences of access to a mobile-friendly platform based on software developed by ArcGIS and the OpenStreetMap Foundation.

Collectively, they may expand upon a number of two-dimensional access maps currently maintained on the PennAccess website.
