University of Applied Sciences Potsdam, 2015
Area Mobility Urban Development Medium Information Visualization Type Research

Inclusive Maps is a project communicating the idea that there are no maps that fit the needs of every user. It is the task of empathetic creators to fill this gap and create maps that are meaningful for persons that don't make a lot of use of existing maps.
Inclusive Maps provides a conceptual framework for designers, developers and social scientists that want to create maps for different groups of people, especially for persons with impairments.
