The inspiration for this project initially came from one of our team members, Fraser. After having worked extensively in the spinal cord injury field, the issues with accessibility for those with impaired mobility are apparent which lowers their quality of life. The inspiration came from the SCI center for which he worked at posting alternate routes to the building from transit hubs which were all downhill - much more navigable for wheelchairs - rather than the directions Google Maps suggested which often took users up steep hills.
What it does
The project is a simple website which utilizes Google Maps API to show a route for users to navigate to building entrances which have accessibility options such as ramps, elevators, etc.
