I'm wondering if there's a map that is already been created a Disability Map over the internet? I'd like to create one for one of my agency. I am not sure if there is an data that I can collect because there are two types of Disability. One is visible and the other is Hidden Visible. I am a hearing impaired and am the GIS Specialist for a soil survey field office and also a Diability Emphasis Program Manager (10 to 20%). Does anyone have any advise for me on how to collect the data ?

Thanks for your time,

Robert,

At the 2005 NACIS conference in Salt Lake City, I remember someone giving a presentation on this subject. Unfortuneatly I can't remember the presenters name or the specifics of the presentation. Hopefully this post will jar someone elses memory.

Hi Robert, I'm not quite sure what exactly you are looking to map... maybe I am misunderstanding your post. Are you looking to map access to the Internet? To web sites? State laws governing disabilities?

At the 2006 NACIS-Madison conference, Megan Lawrence (with Amy Lobben) of the Univ. of Oregon gave a presentation regarding their tactile symbols mapping experiment.
