Mapping Inclusivity: Creating a Crowdsourced Map of Campus Amenities

Presented by: Caitlin Dickinson & Abbey Roelofs | LSA Technology Services


The winning 2020 Hacks with Friends project, 'Mapping Inclusivity', utilized a suite of cloud-based GIS tools to create a mobile-friendly web map and navigation applications to easily find the nearest accessible, and/or gender-neutral restroom, changing table, lactation or reflection room on campus. This information is currently buried in text and Google map format spread across various University sites, and is difficult to access on mobile devices. This poster will highlight the process of creating these map products, introduce the IT community to powerful GIS tools, and hopefully inspire others to help crowdsource updates.
