Abstract. Standards and legislation are already in place to provide the necessary building requirements to improve mobility access for everyone. However, these requirements are not always adhered to for a variety of reasons even in cases of new constructions. Moreover, already existing structures and/or historical buildings built prior to such mobility requirements were put into force must be retrofitted. Consequently, a significant number of potential interesting locations are not accessible to persons with reduced mobility. For this reason, the focus of our research is on the expected content and availability of detailed mobility related information and how to improve the communication of accessibility information to users in order to evaluate the accessibility potential of public places and spaces to help persons with reduced mobility plan their outings by taking advantage of smart data and people in cities.
