ABSTRACT: Mobile GIS and ADA ComplianceGIS and mobile technologies play an important role in the collection, analysis, and remediation of assets governed by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Field inventory and auditing of assets such as facilities and public transportation infrastructure are a natural fit for mapping tools. Determining accurate locations of assets such as bus stops, curb ramps, signs and signals, and features internal to buildings is especially important first step in a developing a comprehensive GIS-driven data management system. GIS analysis using social factors and other location-based data is critical in assessing issues such as path of travel and developing location based prioritization metrics. This presentation will focus on real-world application of GIS and related data management technologies relevant to ADA assessment. This product-neutral presentation will discuss technologies and approaches from a lessons-learned perspective. It is intended to help accessibility stakeholders make informed geospatial data management decisions when for their data management initiatives.
