Wheelmap.org is an online map to search, find and mark wheelchair-accessible places. The tool empowers people with a mobility impairment like wheelchair users, parents with a stroller or the elderly to be more mobile and efficient in their daily routine.
Like with Wikipedia, everyone can participate everywhere by tagging places according to a simple traffic light system. Local groups and companies can get involved by organising mapping events or corporate social days. Since 2010, over 440.000 entries have been crowdsourced worldwide by a large community. Wheelmap is based on the free geodata of OpenStreetMap.org. It is an initiative of SOZIALHELDEN e.V., a German non-profit association located in Berlin.
