I was inspired by an article I read that mentioned how over 40% of locations are inaccessible to those with disabilities and those employing wheelchairs -- MapAbility is now ready to address this concern.

What it does

MapAbility is an innovative, useful, and feasible-to-implement web application allowing indivusals with and without disabilities to converse, share, and act upon inaccessible locations for PwD.

How we built it

MapAbility was built with HTML, HTML5, CSS, CSS3, JavaScript, Java, Atom, Notepad++, and a variety of other tools.

Challenges we ran into

One of the biggest challenges we ran into was ensuring the proper implementation of a location-based service -- using a geolocation API, MapAbility was able to address this issue.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

I'm proud of the fact that I was able to create an application that hasn't been created before and is ready to fulfill a long-lasting concern.

What we learned

I've learned about the application of computer science for social good, and have been able to explore different languages like HTML, JavaScript, and Java.

What's next for MapAbility

MapAbility is looking to now expand into more locations and to conduct customer discovery with potential users -- all of these are goals that would be best fulfilled with the funding Neo Hacks could offer.
