Case Studies

Briometrix Mobility Mapping

CORONAVIRUS UPDATE:  Briometrix is working with Local Authorities to plan and ready communities for post-pandemic recovery, through two parallel strategies:

  • creating efficient community connectivity and walkability to support healthy exercise for recovery of local residents
  • preparing accessible tourism networks to attract visitors, especially those requiring mobility assistance.

These Case Studies illustrate some of the challenges faced by our customers and describe how Briometrix helped customers to achieve their goals. Click on the image or “Case Study” link to download and read the document (PDF format).

Shepparton Case Study

City of Greater Shepparton – Mobility Map attracts Tourists on Wheels

The City of Greater Shepparton asked Briometrix help move away from dated paper-based Access Maps which only showed locations of accessible facilities, to an interactive, high-tech solution that represented good value for money and offered wheelchair users a genuine opportunity to plan their activities before embarking for on any journey.

The City’s maps were to be relevant for Accessible Tourism, which has been shown to drive significant extra  revenue and employment opportunities for regional towns and cities in Australia.

Townsville Case Study

Mobility in Townsville – City commits to universal accessibility

In 2019, surveying 40km of existing CBD footpaths, Townsville City Council’s brief to Briometrix was to:

  • Gain an understanding of the accessibility of key precincts in Townsville – CBD, the Strand and South Townsville – and to determine the level of effort for people with limited mobility and wheelchair users to move around these areas.
  • Create an interactive Mobility Effort Map
  • Assess footpath condition throughout the area
  • Create a footpath data-set that could be used by Council’s Infrastructure & Operations Division.

Wollongong – Briometrix, University & City combined mobility project

In conjunction with the City and University of Wollongong, Briometrix produced Mobility Maps of the CBD and popular tourist venues.

A coastal city of 300,000 people in New South Wales, Wollongong once hosted Australia’s largest steelworks and is now home to a major university and thriving entrepreneurial community.

The Mobility Map is published by the University’s Vision Illawarra site, and linked from the City’s Disabilities Access Guide.
