This global accessibility map is crowdsourced designed to help people with limited mobility. Axs Map is an app with venues from all over the world listed on it, plus reviews from users. This is supposed to help the disabled get around and know before entering which places have disability facilities.

The free app hopes to make the world a more accessible place. The accessibility map can be accessed via smartphone or desktop computer. Users can look at any area and search for restaurants, public bathrooms, retail spaces and more. The crowdsourced database includes ratings plus information on entry ways and restrooms.

In order to get community members involved in less mapped areas, Axs Map also hosts Mapathons to increase review numbers and help people in that area.
