CfA Blog: Crowdsourcing Accessibility Maps

I wrote an article about the AXSMaps accessibility information crowdsourcing platform after observing a community mapping exercise in San Francisco.

As a neogeographer, someone who wants to see easy-to-use mapping tools in the hands of as many people as possible, this was a very inspiring and exciting event. Watching volunteers build a real-time map of neighborhood accessibility — something that can be useful to so many residents of the area — was a fantastic “Code for America” grassroots experience!
