On Wheels was founded in 2014 by Michiel, Joke, Rob and Karl. Michiel and Joke are wheelchair users, they used their own experiences in overcoming obstacles to bring this project to life.
Providing geo-located information in real-time via mobile enhances the experience of cities best adapted to daily life activities, specially with mobility restraints. For maps to become richer, input is needed in the form of measurements. This is accomplished in collaborative way, since the geo-located measures can be given by anyone who downloaded the app. Exposing the creator’s story means potential new beneficiaries, contributors and larger mapped areas.
