The “Ughecuyc” is an interactive map on which public places are located according to their level of accessibility for people with locomotory problems. The whole territory of the Republic of Armenia will be included in the appendix. The location accessibility on the map is based on the opinions and assessments (available, not available, half available and other additional assessments) by the users who downloads and uses the application.
The application has passed the testing phase by the “ExterTest” organization.
The goal of the “Companion Map Armenia” proյեցտ was to create opportunities for people with locomotory problems; to speak up about the need to pay more attention to providing access to public places, especially after the Artsakh II war.
The “DiverCity” NGO has collaborated with a number of local and international CSOs and NGOs, and has involved more than 30 volunteers who helped to supplement the application.
On the other hand, during the implementation of the project, the “DiverCity” NGO has been in active written cooperation with state structures, including the ministries and Yerevan Municipality.
