This is a unique project.
To the best of our knowledge, no other university or organization has performed a similar project.
We hope that this project will set some guidelines for handicapped accessibility mapping.
This is a classical GIS project, which include data integration, spatial data collection, and spatial and attribute data presentation.
It should be a good learning experience which hopefully will yield a useful product.
