Based on the clients’ needs and the agreement of chief organizations and institutions dealing with architectural barriers, Accessibility Mapping Methodology and related categorization were created. It serves for accessibility ratings from the user‘s perspective, which is for practical reasons less strict than the current legislation. Nevertheless, we comply strictly with the valid ordinance when commenting on projects.
This symbol is used at the description of the locations with particularly bumpy/rough terrain. Usually this is a poorly maintained historic pavement consisting of large bumpy/ rough cobbles with deep holes in between them.
Sloped terrain on the route or in the immediate surroundings of the location (including missing or substandard dropped kerbs).
Barrier-free entry via the main entrance enabling access to an accessible or a partially accessible location.
Side entrance enabling barrier-free access or an entrance that (in comparison to the main entrance) makes access to the location easier.
As a supplement to this symbol, the number of stairs is specified in the additional text. For example: + 3 = 3 stairs up; - 1 = 1 stair down; + 3 - 1 = 3 stairs up and 1 stair down – between them there is a stair landing or a larger area without stairs. If, after surmounting several stairs into part of a building, the access to other floors is possible only via a greater number of additional stairs, there is a warning "staircase" stated in the text. If there is no additional text at the object with this symbol, this means that there are stairs in series/staircase without any equipment for surmounting them or a possibility to be bypassed.
A staircase that significantly complicates the assistance with its surmounting – for example, narrowing stairs, narrow passages (narrower than 80 cm), dropped ceilings etc.
