AccessforEverybody.org: The Google Mashup for Full Inclusion!




On Wheelmap.org you can find accessible locations. Everybody can add a place and mark it as accessible, partly accessible or not accessible. We also collect information from other databases and add it to the map.

Wheelmap is an open project under an open license. That means you can use the data as long as you link back to http://wheelmap.org. We cooperate with openstreetmap.

The people behind Wheelmap.org are the SOZIALHELDEN.

If you'd like to share location data or are interested in working with us, please call or e-mail Raul Krauthausen:

German version:

Was ist Wheelmap?

In Deutschland leben ca. 1,6 Millionen Menschen, die auf einen Rollstuhl angewiesen sind. Die Dunkelziffer liegt weltweit bei ca. 185 Millionen. wheelmap.org ist ein Verzeichnis für rollstuhlgerechte und nicht so rollstuhlgerechte Orte. Alle Benutzer, egal ob im Rollstuhl oder nicht, können Orte eintragen, verändern und finden. So, wie bei Wikipedia. Mit den generierten Daten wollen wir eine Grundlage bieten, die Ortsbesitzer zum Umdenken bewegt und motiviert über "Barrierefreiheit" in ihren Räumlichkeiten nachzudenken.

Denn von wheelmap.org profitieren nicht nur Rollstuhlfahrer, sondern auch Menschen mit Rollatoren und Familien mit Kinderwagen. This work is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 2.0 Generic License.wheelmap.org ist deutschlands erste offene Datenbank für rollstuhlgerechte Orte. Die Daten stehen unter einer offenen Lizenz und können kostenlos weiterverwendet werden. Wir arbeiten mit der freien Weltkarte OpenStreetMap zusammen, wo wir alle Daten ablegen.
