How Steep Is That Sidewalk? A Digital Map for People With Disabilities

Copyright
2019

This article discusses AccessMap Seattle, designed to help users find streets color-coded for steepness (green for flat, yellow for moderate, and red for steep), and the locations of curb cuts, bus stops, and elevators, as well as construction sites, which tend to sprawl and block crosswalks and sidewalks. AccessMap is still in the development stage, but eventually, the team hopes, it could benefit those with mobility limitations who navigate Seattle, especially those without knowledge of the city’s lesser-known accessible routes.
