From Civicist:

This is civic techAccessMap is an AI-powered online travel planner built on top of OpenSidewalks, which logs the physical features of sidewalk infrastructure, to help people with disabilities plan and navigate any trip—all built by a team led byAnat Caspi of the University of Washington’s Taskar Center for Accessible Technology, as Melissa Hellmann reports for the Seattle Times. AccessMap allows users to customize their journey by choosing the percentage of uphill and downhill steepness of a path and whether they’d like to avoid curbs. Right now it only covers Seattle. Caspi sees her work as transcending the needs of the more than one billion people with disabilities worldwide, and “designing for the fullness of the human condition.”
