Campus Accessibilty Map

I'm advising a group of freshmen students at the Engineering School on a website development project and they showed me another great website made as a freshman project - a map of all the buildings on campus and their disability access points. The purpose of the project was to facilitate access to information on the locations of accessible entrances and ways of getting to them for University faculty, staff, students, prospective students, and visitors. The students who created the website also work to review, update, and add to a database containing numerous measurements of the handicap-accessible entrances of each building, ensuring that each is in compliance with the requirements set forth in the Americans with Disabilities Act Accessibility Guidelines (ADAAG).
