To whom do the data about the resources belong?

Why am I unable to find some resources in TUR4all?

Try using different search options such as location as the resource might have been registered with a different name.

Many times, establishments have an official name and then a name they are more commonly known by; in TUR4all we register the official name if the resource has been visited by one of our technicians, whereas users might us the name it is more commonly known as.

Our database contains contributions from both users and the work of our technicians, but there are many tourism resources, so in many cases it is simply because we have not come across them yet.

Why not simply register a resource that you have been unable to find and tell us about its accessibility; if you do not know it very well but you think it might be interesting to include, simply send un an email and we will do our best to visit it.

Editing resources

How can I delete the photos of a resource?

Why should I upload a photo of a resource?

If there are photos of resources such as restaurants, shopping centres, theatres, etc. people with a physical disability can quickly decide if the resource is accessible for them or not. For example, they can see if they can navigate a step at the entrance on their own or if they will require assistance from someone else.

Furthermore, some people find it difficult to fully understand from a description what the bathroom facilities are like, whereas with a photo, they can clearly see where and how the grab bars are located, and therefore decide if they can make the transfer or not.

What should the photos be like?

If possible, try to include the name of the resource in the photo (for example a sign above the door at the entrance).

Try to ensure that photos are in landscape: All image formats are accepted (jpg, tiff, png).

The maximum size of the archives should be 2MB.
