From the Georabblepers, Tuesday 29 March 2016
The first Georabble Perth for 2016 reached for Mars and made it at least into orbit with an accidentally space and craft beer – based theme for Georabble Perth #16.
Chris Roach kicked-off proceedings talking about how to make our maps more accessible. Tim Berners-Lee once said “The power of the Web is in its universality. Access by everyone regardless of disability is an essential aspect”. How many of us think about making our maps accessible to those with disabilities? Chris showed us how, that with a little forethought, it’s possible to put our maps in the hands of those that can’t use a keyboard and even those with impaired vision through the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG).
