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 repos:

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 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<>, 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<> (which runs on Wordpress).

Sozialhelden has a github repository<> 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!


- Jon.
