Abstract

MEP (Maps for Easy Paths) is a project for the enrichment of geographical maps with information about accessibility of urban pedestrian pathways, targeted at people with mobility problems and, in particular, with motor impairments. In this paper we describe the application to collect data along the paths travelled by target people and show experimental results.
