Allows a user to send a telephone message, text message, and GPS location to the emergency services in Iceland.

“Iceland is not very densely populated, and it is quite frequent for callers in emergency situations to have no idea about their location. One such incident occurred last Fall; a tourist died, unable to tell rescue crews where he was located. This incident sparked the idea to develop the ‘112 Iceland’ app. The app uses the GPS service available in most smartphones to assist the emergency call taker in locating the caller. The app’s ‘Emergency’ facility takes the current GPS position and sends it via SMS to the 112 Centre, and calls 112. The app’s ‘Leave a trail’ facility is for travelling in the back country, with a danger of avalances, floods, or just simple falling, and where GSM coverage can be sketchy. When one presses the ‘Leave a trail’ button, the current GPS position is sent to the 112 centre, stored in a database, and can become the starting point of any search.” Tomas Gislason, 112 Iceland | PatientView survey, July-August 2012

 ‘OpenStreetMap’ that shows ramps and other disability-friendly access facilities.

“An app that gives you a list of wheelchair-accessible locations and amenities in your area. It uses location data to pinpoint where you are, and, using ‘OpenStreet’ data, it tells you what local amenities are accessible nearby. Where appropriate, the listings have contact details from the businesses. You can view the search results in list form, or on a map, depending on what suits you. And, if you set up an account, you can contribute to the app’s database by adding new locations yourself.” Spinal News, Summer 2012, page 31, Spinal Injuries Ireland | http://bit.ly/QAFwck
