Today is a campaign raising awareness of barriers encountered. These include people with wheelchairs, walking aids and pushchairs.
The campaign uses app and website to add accessibility information into OpenStreetMap.
Barriers affect many people: Elderly, children, families as well as those with disabilities. Stopping them from being able to access places taken for granted by most people. By mapping these barriers, the ‘MapMyDay’ campaign is starting a worldwide movement to call attention to these, with the intention of removing them.
Download the app from mapmyday.org. As you go about your day make a difference by recording if the places you visit are ‘fully’, ‘partially’ or ‘not wheelchair accessible’.
