Description

Find and rate wheelchair accessible places – worldwide and free of charge.

Find wheelchair accessible restaurants, cafes, toilets, shops, cinemas, parking lots, bus stops and much more. The Wheelmap and OpenStreetMap communities have already rated about 1 million places! Ratings for another million places come from a growing number of partners such as Foursquare City Guide, Jaccede, AXSMap, HERE, Parkopedia, bahnhof.de, Mapy bez barier, etc. All in all, you can find accessibility reviews of more than 2,000,000 places on Wheelmap! More entries are added daily.

As with Wikipedia, you too can join in and contribute information about places worldwide. This is important, because in some regions of the world there are only a few entries at the moment. Help us improve the map: Rate the entrances and restrooms of public places according to their wheelchair accessibility and upload images of the places.

The 30 countries with the highest number of rated places are:

Germany (582,174), United States (277,194), India (258,992), France (161,486), South Africa (74,568), Canada (57,247), Czech Republic (53,888) United Kingdom (53,718), Austria (52,253), Italy (40,256), Australia (31,238), Spain (25,905), Algeria (24,657), Japan (21,503), Switzerland (20,820), Taiwan (15,300), Netherlands (15,030), Russian Federation (13,816), Hungary (13,186), Poland (13,056), United Arab Emirates (12,976), Turkey (11,180), Belgium (8,834), Brazil (8,070), Indonesia (7,765), Ukraine (7,495), Republic of Côte d'Ivoire (7,467), Mexico (7,449), Croatia (7,194).

A work in progress

This is an app in progress, and as such I would rate it at two stars. However, I’m adding an extra star to reflect the positive contact I had with the developer. I expect that over time as the app is further developed my rating will rise. It’s a good idea and one I’d like to participate in.

Developer Response ,

I'm sorry you did not have a good experience. You are right, the default language for the "add new place" is in German today. But you can switch it to English!

We plan to integrate the form into our app but as a non-profit organization we have scarce resources so this may take a little more time. I hope you try the form again in English.
