C&H Mapping #6: Mapping accessibility with JOSM and Mapillary
In the 6th meeting of PoliMappers Passion in Action course, we will explore accessibility mapping; the activity will be part of the project ViaLibera. The project aims to map and evaluate the accessibility of Municipality 9 of Milano. The partners are the Politecnico di Milano and three association of people with physical disabilities (Spazio Vita Niguarda Onlus, Ledha Milano and AUS Niguarda Onlus). The topic of accessibility mapping will be explained with some examples and the possible use of this data. The mapping activity will be done using JOSM and the Mapillary plugin. This type of mapping, also defined as micro mapping, requires to have street-level images. The most useful are 360 degrees images that will be collected by the volunteer association partner of the projects. The elements mapped will be crossing, sidewalks and all types of obstacles, like kerbs. Do not forget to bring your laptop and mouse to contribute in the most comfortable way. The event will be hosted both in presence and virtually. For people who would like to follow the events in person, the reference room at Politecnico di Milano - Città Studi is 25.0.2 PoliMi students that are interested could register to the webinar series as part of the "Collaborative and Humanitarian Mapping" innovative teaching course (https://www.polimi.it/.../innovative.../course-detail/...) and at the end of the course they will have their attendance recognised with 2 extra CFU in their Diploma Supplement. The course is open and freely accessible also to people not enrolled in any Politecnico di Milano tracks.
