Developers from Google have spent time gathering information regarding accessibility for public places like restaurants in order to add the information to Google Maps. Now, entries will also show information on accessibility, such as whether the restaurant is wheelchair accessible. Developers were able to do this by relying on answers from local people, who answer questions about the places they go. The developers began adding questions about accessibility and got enough responses that they can begin adding the information to the entries on Google Maps.
