Google added accessibility details to Maps back in December. It was a feature many people have been waiting for, just in the U.S. alone there are more than three million people who require wheelchair accessibility. Maps has currently collected accessibility data for almost seven million places, but even with databases like Wheelmap, there were still some pretty big gaps across the country.
This month, Google started to speed up the process by crowdsourcing the dataset, essentially letting Android users add that information for a location themselves, right in the app. This information is located under the “Accessibility” tab in “Your Contributions.” There users can add information about spots that have a wheelchair accessible entrance, elevator, restroom and more.
