A tool for residents to help record accessibility challenges in the City
Funded by the University of Victoria, WalkRollMap.org is a crowdsourcing tool for mapping micro barriers to accessible walking and rolling. What is a micro barrier? Anything that makes it harder (or maybe even impossible) to walk or roll safely or comfortably in the community. It might be a missing bench, uneven payment, or unplowed snow. Whatever it is that is getting in your way, or missing (e.g. bench or washroom) we want to know what it is and where!
Why use WalkRollMap.org?
WalkRollMap.org does not replace 311. Urgent accessibility challenges should be reported to 3-1-1, where service requests are not shared publicly, and other members of the community are not able to see that other people have reported concerns. By using WalkRollMap.org, residents will be contributing to a visual record of accessibility challenges in the City of Ottawa and also have access to view the overall map of all concerns reported.
