Age friendly maps

New York City has some maps assessing different "age friendly" factors around the city.  Some, like the distance to ADA-accessible subway stations, reveal some interesting patterns in the outer boroughs.

I think you may be interested in the Geospatial Revolution Project. The project explores the world of digital mapping and how it has changed how we think, behave, and interact. The project will feature a web-based serial release of video episodes - each telling an intriguing geospatial story. The first episodes will be released in mid-September.

The project can be found here: http://www.geospatialrevolution.psu.edu/. Also, if you are on twitter, be sure to follow @geospatialrev for updates from the production team.

I would be interested in seeing a map that shows the distribution of sidewalk curb cuts.
