UBC Undergraduate Research

Accessibility and diversity mapping and infographics Melliship, Celeste

Abstract

There are three mobility groups with different needs; those who use electrical wheelchairs, those who use non-motorized wheelchairs, and those who don’t use either form of wheelchair but still have some form of mobility or accessibility impairment (for example those on crutches, the elderly, or people with other physical disabilities). The goals of this map were twofold: the first was to assist people from all groups in making decisions about what route they can take and two, to make visible and known the improvements to universal accessibility that have been made around UBC campus.
