Free and Low Cost Assistive Technology of the Week

Wheelmap is a great website and application for finding accessible locations around you. Wheelmap is a map for finding wheelchair accessible places. The map works similar to Wikipedia: anyone can contribute and mark public places around the world according to their wheelchair accessibility. The criteria for marking places is based on a simple traffic light system:

Green = Fully wheelchair accessible
Yellow = Partly wheelchair accessible
Red = Not wheelchair accessible

Places that are not yet marked according to their wheelchair accessibility have a grey marker. They can be marked by anybody quickly and easily. The information that is collected in this way is easy to understand, available free of charge and can be shared freely. is based on the world map OpenStreetMap and shows 130 different types of places. These place types are illustrated by the icons in the green, yellow, red and grey markers.
