Topic: ways2see – Wayfinding for people with visual impairments or blindness
Presenters: Susanne Zimmermann-Janschitz and Sebastian Drexel
ways2see is a Web AppBuilder based information platform designed for people with visual impairments or blindness. As a pre-trip planning tool it is intended to support the users in planning their daily routes according to their individual needs. The system avoids barriers and offers a sufficient amount of orientation features as hints and landmarks along the way.
ArcGIS Desktop is used for data management, automatic data acquisition and network analysis (NA). The NA is additionally adapted to the needs of the users,
especially concerning linear information, e.g. where a person is moving along (wall, fence etc.).
Web AppBuilder is used for designing the user interface, adopting pre-defined widgets to the needs by integrating different user-profiles. Furthermore the results and the user-interface are provided in an accessible way, e.g. available for screen readers.
The slogan of ways2see can be summarized as ‘accessible information about accessibility’.
