accessibility win map (well not quite, it's called wheelmap.org)

[All ganked from [personal profile] pretty_panther  because I don't have words yet this morning:]

Wheelmap.org


"Wheelmap.org is an online map to search, find and mark wheelchair-accessible places. -"
I'm so glad that this is a thing! I don't know if it is an accurate thing but I know you can add info about your own town and such. You can also mark places that are not accessible at all or only have access to certain parts of it and so on. It sounds like it has the potential to be a fabulous tool for wheelchair users [and walker users and stroller users]. Linking because a, I'm excited and b, because a few of you might find it helpful. :)

It would be nicer if it were integrated well into open street map.... or even google maps... but this looks good!
