Concept3D Adds Wheelchair Wayfinding to Interactive Map Platform

wheelchair wayfinding

A new feature of Concept3D's interactive map and tour platform enables wheelchair users to find the easiest and most efficient route to their destination, factoring in accessibility considerations like stairs and wheelchair-accessible entrances.

The wheelchair wayfinding function has already been integrated in the interactive campus map at Texas A&M University, according to a news announcement. "While TAMU's campus terrain is relatively flat, there are a lot of stairs, inclines and curb cuts that may present challenges for campus accessibility and are now factored into the new wayfinding system," the announcement explained.

"We created the map with the user in mind," said Michael Green, manager of emerging and interactive media at Texas A&M, in a statement. "We're especially excited about the new information for wheelchair users. It underscores our reputation for being a welcoming and inclusive community."
