What is Wheelmap.org?

Wheelmap is an online map of wheelchair-accessible places. At www.wheelmap.org and using the apps, everyone can easily find places, add them and rate them using a simple traffic light system – worldwide. Currently, over 2,3 million cafés, libraries, swimming pools and many other publicly accessible places are recorded. Wheelmap is available in 32 languages.

Wheelmap - how it works

Wheelmap is based on the OpenStreetMap. A simple traffic light system indicates the wheelchair accessibility of a location. With a few clicks the rating can be saved by the users: Green indicates step-free access. Places marked in orange are partially accessible and places shown in red are not accessible. WCs can also be rated and photos uploaded.

Why Wheelmap?

Accessibility info

Over 15% of the world's population has a disability. Information on accessibility is very important for this group of people and at the same time difficult to find. With Wheelmap.org we want to close the information gap on accessibility.

Responsibility for diversity

Taking a stand for diversity in society and actively promoting it is more important than ever. Wheelmap.org wants to set an example that people with different backgrounds and abilities naturally belong to it.

Equal participation

The Disability Rights Convention states that all people have a right to equal participation. At Wheelmap.org, people with and without mobility impairments can participate and awareness for accessibility in society is raised.
