Organize your own local mapping event! Engage people in your community and work with them to rate places for wheelchair accessibility.
Together, you can make sure that public places in your area are on the world’s largest wheelchair accessibility database.
We support you with information about Wheelmap and provide assistance in planning and running your mapping event.
You can always organize a mapping event with your friends, colleagues, neighbors or (fellow) students. You can also join Wheelmap’s annual mapping campaigns with your mapping event. We usually organize a larger campaign in spring and fall.
Why a Mapping-Event?
The recommended procedure:
Intro (30-60 min)
Starting together helps clarify questions and get in the mood for the activity.
Activity: Rate places (2-4 h)
Closing (30-60 min)
Anyone can organize and carry out a mapping event in their own city or region on their own responsibility. As supporting material we offer you a guide for the organization and a handout for the mappers with the Wheelmap mapping criteria. In addition, we will send you an envelope with Wheelmap flyers upon request. This way you can explain to interested passers-by and store owners what Wheelmap.org is.
