CAP4ACCESS – Collective Awareness Platforms for Improving Accessibility in European Cities Regions
The CAP4Access project ended in June 2016.
The objective of CAP4Access was to develop and pilot-test methods and tools for collectively gathering and sharing spatial information for improving accessibility. The aim was to exploit the power of online maps and mobile devices for fostering awareness of barriers for individuals with limited mobility and for removing such barriers. CAP4Access helped integrating disabled communities into society (social sustainability), saving public resources e.g. by helping municipalities to focus expenditures (economic sustainability) and also saving natural resources e.g. by facilitating public transport use (ecological sustainability).
