Hi all -

I've recently been approached about accessibility issues with products like
ArcIMS with is an industry-standard GIS product. There is a web version
which is basically like, well, MapQuest. Its used for mapping and tracking
all sorts of data - from oil and gas to planning population growth for the
best location for new schools. Very cool and interesting stuff. But the
interface is an accessibility "challenge" to say the least. Has anyone done
any work with the web version of ArcIMS? Know of any resources, etc to
approach this problem?

Thanks!
