Google Maps for Israel
Last week Google added map data coverage in the Google Maps API for Israel across all services, including map tiles, geocoding, directions, and places.
Access Israel are the first to use the new map data in the API. Access Israel is a nongovernmental, non-profit organisation that promotes disabled accessibility. The organisation's website features a great Google Map that features businesses that are accessible throughout the country.
Users of the map can search for accessible buildings by location or by type (e.g. sports facilities, shops, restaurants).
