dc.description.abstract When it comes to providing solutions capable of increasing self-determination of individuals with disabilities, PIMD -- profound and multiple intellectual disabilities, seems to be one of the biggest challenges. As a multidisciplinary team of researchers, we have an ambition of designing a technological platform based on recent advances in ICT that will assist people with PIMD in using digital services and applications that facilitate their communication with others and allow them to directly influence their living environment. Designing this system -- the INSENSION platform, requires us to collect comprehensive information on the target end users. Due to the fact that the PIMD population is relatively small we are able to only involve about 15 individuals with PIMD in our project works. That is why we introduce the Global PIMD Atlas which is an online platform to collect information on people with PIMD and share it within the community involved in studying PIMD and supporting these people. In this paper we present how we designed such a repository and argue how it could be used to get better understanding of the characteristics of this population group and in consequence to provide new, better solutions to support them. en
