Hi Aya,

These are some of the applications that you can use:

  *   AXS Map<https://www.axsmap.com/>
  *   Access Now<http://accessnow.me/map/>
  *   Wheelmap<https://wheelmap.org/en/map#/?zoom=14>,
  *   J’accede<https://www.jaccede.com/en/>

These apps work with Accessibility Cloud<https://www.accessibility.cloud/>.
AXS Map have a community action called mapathon: A mapathon is a coordinated mapping event.  Mapathons provide a quick and easy way to determine accessibility and inclusivity in our communities.
At the IDRC with BIG IDeA we have created a Quick Accessibility Assessment Form for a BIG IDeA Mapathon: https://bigidea.one/quick-accessibility-assessement-form/ We share this data with Accessibility Cloud.

Best regards,

Project & Outreach Coordinator

Hello Everyone!

I have been searching for current websites or apps that offer crowdsourcing to pin-point the accessibility status of locations on an interactive map (other than Access now app<http://accessnow.me/>). I am looking for something similar to google maps accessibility feedback that can be crowd sourced by customers with accessibility but in a more comprehensive approach than what Google have currently. Our network back in Saudi is interested to develop an app with this idea for businesses in Saudi and we are looking if similar apps currently exist to benchmark it or even co-develop it with its owners. Moreover, I heard that Google maps are re- launching its accessibility section, does anyone know if that is true?

Thank you!
