What is AMP?

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

Designed by Mark Bookman (GAPSA, Chair for Equity and Access), the AMP uses data collected via crowdsourcing and user-generated surveys to illustrate both existing and desired features of access.

Users may upload pictures and text that illustrate their individual experiences of access to a mobile-friendly platform based on software developed by Wheelmap.org and the Open Street Map Foundation.

In so doing, they will expand upon a collection of two-dimensional access maps currently maintained on the Penn Access website.
