NYC Accessbility

Project Lead: @bkey@henripal

The NYC Accessibility project encompasses two sets of tools:

  • Mine social media for accessibility information: Investigate scraping sites like Yelp, Foursquare, and Twitter for details about accessibility at specific locations and generating automatic readings for a site like AXS Map

  • MTA Accessibility: Scrape the output of the MTA regarding the availability and maintentance status of elevators, escalators, and other affordances for those with mobility impairments. Present it in a more usable format. (Start with NYC Subways and Buses EE Outage System.)

The initial work for these projects was done at the first NYC D4D hackathon.
