  • Global accessibility map

    This cool, interactive map by Rick Hansen rates spots around the world on a scale of 0-5, with 5 being the most accessible to those with disabilities. It was released in October (it's still really new) and plans to cover everything from restaurants to hotels based on personal experience. What some call "accessible" often is nothing near accessible.

    The tool will allow all people - including people with disabilities, seniors and parents with strollers to make informed decisions on everyday activities such as where they eat, shop, work and play. It is based on a five-star framework and is similar in concept to the consumer reviews commonly found on many travel websites, but with a focus on accessibility criteria.
