Abstract

The use of Social media is growing fast. The objective of the SosPromo project was to investigate the possibilities of Social Media tools and processes as a rapid way of information collection and sharing to enable and support the mobility of the selected user group, people with some movement reducing factor. The actual implementation in SosPromo-project focused on crowdsourcing accessibility information from Points Of Interest, POIs (e.g. restaurants, cafes, shops) especially in the Helsinki capital region in Finland. This information can be used for personalised journey planning especially with disabled or elderly users or person with temporary mobility restrictions e.g. when moving in a city with a small child in a push chair. The introduced SosPromo concept enables further information sharing between different user groups.
