What is AXS Map?
AXS Map is an online access map showing accessible locations for individuals with mobility impairments. It is powered by a user-generated database which is available to all to help contribute to the community map. By showing accessible places within cities, AXS Map hopes to provide new freedom to be spontaneous about choices for where to eat, shop, work, or play – all at your fingertips.
How can AXS Map help?
The app functions by utilising a map alongside an icon system which tells people if a location has an mobility impairment friendly entrance, interior, and restrooms. It does this using three different colors: blue (accessible), yellow (caution), and red (alert). By knowing the most accessible places, everyone can enjoy the most out of their city without encountering any frustration or obstacles.
The app currently is most popular in major cities in north america and some other global cities. Is there not accessibility data for your city? AXS Map also offers Mapathons for locals to gather together to help map the city together! There’s a role for everybody.
