The Accessibility Mapping Project is a digital interface for mapping physical and social barriers on college campuses.
Initiated by Mark Bookman (GAPSA, Chair for Equity and Access) at the University of Pennsylvania during the fall of 2017, the AMP was designed to supplement the static building maps maintained by the university.
We understand “accessibility” as a multivalent and intersectional quality that cannot be reduced to a single set of guidelines. Therefore, our project invites users to record their embodied experiences of campus spaces by submitting text, images, and audio.
Our mobile-friendly web app, built using ArcGIS, offers a dynamic resource for navigating the features, obstructions, and qualities that impede or facilitate access.
Note: because our data is crowdsourced, we cannot guarantee its accuracy.
