Wheelmap.org – Mapping the accessibility of places with the help of people and technology

Facing the demands of keeping a simple UX design, sorting a jungle of data licenses and data sources and eyeing the ultimate goal of “disability mainstreaming”, the Wheelmap team has started the project “Accessibility Cloud”.

Since Wheelmap was launched in 2010, a mapping crowd consisting of thousands of people from all over the world has contributed more than 830,000 ratings on the wheelchair accessibility of public places. Facing the demands of keeping a simple UX design, sorting a jungle of data licenses and data sources and eyeing the ultimate goal of “disability mainstreaming”, the Wheelmap team has started the project “Accessibility Cloud”. With this new infrastructure, we are exploring new solutions for creating a bigger impact for accessibility mapping outcomes. Svenja and Sebastian will give you an insight into the status quo and the latest community and IT developments.

This session is held on in Main Room
