AccessKB: linked open data for accessible travel

AccessKB: linked open data for accessible travel
AccessKB: linked open data for accessible travel
Recent developments in Information Communication Technologies and digital map services have empowered aspects of digital inclusion, which can benefit people with disabilities with an increasingly wider range of information regarding accessible travel. However, accessibility data collection and management is one of the grand challenges in the area of accessible map information and accessible travel research. Most research projects in this area are still in the early stages of development, leading to difficulties in the provision of sufficient data about the barriers encountered by people with disabilities. This results in time-consuming searches for physical accessibility data. This paper presents an approach for accessibility data management and accessibility modelling, by introducing the AccessKB, a Linked Data-driven knowledge base designed for barrier-free or accessible travel.

Abstract

Recent developments in Information Communication Technologies and digital map services have empowered aspects of digital inclusion, which can benefit people with disabilities with an increasingly wider range of information regarding accessible travel. However, accessibility data collection and management is one of the grand challenges in the area of accessible map information and accessible travel research. Most research projects in this area are still in the early stages of development, leading to difficulties in the provision of sufficient data about the barriers encountered by people with disabilities. This results in time-consuming searches for physical accessibility data. This paper presents an approach for accessibility data management and accessibility modelling, by introducing the AccessKB, a Linked Data-driven knowledge base designed for barrier-free or accessible travel.
