Berlin resident Ingo Stoecker poses his iPhone in the Schillingstrasse Metro Station in Berlin, Germany on Saturday, Jan. 15, 2011. Stoecker uses the iPhone application Wheelmap to avoid stairs like these at a Berlin metro station that is not wheelchair accessible. The application and its website Wheelmap.org allow users to rate the accessibility of everything from street corners to national monuments in real time, much like a Wikipedia page. Wheelmap works off of an open-source map that allows users to rate accessibility with red, yellow, and green flags, and allows them to add commentary. Stoecker says he uses Wheelmap mostly when he is in unfamiliar parts of Berlin or when traveling outside the city. (AP Photo/Shane McMillan)
