Wheelchair Access on Google Maps
Rick Hansen's Global Accessibility Map is a Google Map designed to crowd-source reviews on the mobility accessibility of buildings and public spaces worldwide.
Using the map it is possible to search for accessible buildings worldwide. The buildings are categorised into 'restaurants', 'theatre / cultural', 'museums', 'hotels' etc and each building is reviewed using a 5 star system.
Users can add their own reviews of buildings by logging in with their Facebook account or registering with the Global Accessibility Map.
