Mapping Mobility in Stockport
Sam Milsom

In early 2019, Open Data Manchester teamed up with Stockport council, Disability Stockport
and Age UK Stockport to crowdsource data around mobility and accessibility in the town centre. This talk will cover the mapping methodology, findings, difficulties and solutions, as well as suggesting ways in which we can better map for these communities, making the data collected for OSM more inclusive and accessible for all.
