Though a work in-progress, the Accessibility Mapping Project (AMP) at the University of Pennsylvania is a crowdsourced digital map providing information on physical and social barriers at Penn. The Graduate Student Research Colloquium (responsible for organizing the Bodies and Borders conference) will work with AMP to add information on the conference venues.
