Integrating Wheelmaps to BIG IDeA

Hi Jon,

I looked at Sozialhelden’s work a while back and I think a starting point might be looking at the accessibility.cloud repos:

https://github.com/sozialhelden/accessibility-cloud
https://github.com/sozialhelden/accessibility-cloud-js

accessibility-cloud (my understanding) acts as a point of integration for physical accessibility data from Wheelmaps and other providers.

It’s probably worth looking at https://github.com/sozialhelden/accessibility-cloud-js in particular, their JS widget for displaying location information. That might help with the 2nd point

Hope that helps!

Subject: Integrating Wheelmaps to BIG IDeA


Hi everyone,



For the BIG IDeA project, we are promoting ways to engage businesses and the public regarding accessibility of physical spaces.



Wheelmaps<https://wheelmap.org/>, by Sozialhelden, is a webapp that allows crowdsourcing of accessibility information and I would like to explore how we might integrate that with the BIG IDeA website<https://bigidea.one/> (which runs on Wordpress).



Sozialhelden has a github repository<https://github.com/sozialhelden> which contains code that we might be able to use, however this is beyond my understanding. I am hoping for some assistance from the community in exploring what is possible.



Here are some possible integration ideas (which may or may not be feasible, I am hoping one of you can help determine this):



  *   A business owners and visitors on BIG IDeA can submit accessibility information directly to Wheelmaps from the BIG IDeA website (i.e. using a form, a map or some other submission interaction)
  *   Search and find accessible businesses
  *   Find mapping events happening locally, maybe even create mapping events as well.


To summarize:

Given the code available in github, would it be possible to add Wheelmaps integration to the BIG IDeA website? If yes, what would be possible?



Any help is appreciated!



Thanks,

- Jon.
