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.
Current event: #MapMyHood!
How wheelchair accessible is your neighborhood? We invite you to participate in a big crowdsourcing event from May, 20-26: You know the places in your immediate neighborhood and you can use your knowledge to help many people make their everyday lives easier – by entering on Wheelmap.org which places are accessible without steps and which are not.
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.
Wheelmap on the go
With the free app for Android and iOS smartphones, you are always well equipped to find and rate wheelchair-accessible places on the go.
