Topographic Slope Analysis

This diagram by Carol R. Johnson Associates, the landscape planning firm on our Campus Master Planning Team, identifies illustrates the steepness of the existing slopes throughout the campus.  These slopes have a direct bearing on   handicap accessibility issues as defined by ADA guidelines.  The yellow represents areas with a 1-5% slope, orange represents areas with a 5-8% slope, and red areas with a slope over 8%.  Walking on less than a 5% slope is acceptable,  walking on a slope between 5-8% would be considered walking on a ramp and would require handrails; and walking on a slope  greater than 8% exceeds recommended guidelines (such areas would not be considered accessible).
