Our collaborative partner, Ann Arbor Center for Independent Living, pointed out that ADA guidelines are not always sufficient for meeting the needs of people with disabilities. As a graduate research assistant I conducted a literature review and qualitative narratives to assess built environment attributes needed to make the built environment accessible for people in wheelchairs. I developed two Google Street View Audit Instruments as a result of my research. To illustrate the GSVA instruments, I independently created these accompanying graphics.
