Research proposed that wheelchair user uses remote sensing (RS), Real-Time Kinematic-Global Positioning System (RTK-GPS) and Geographic Information System (GIS) support to make barrier-free map. In this paper, Remote Sensing means high-resolution satellite imageries. If equipment of RTK-GPS attach to wheelchair, barrier-free map can be able to revise as the imageries on computer every day. Wheelchair users always can get the latest information of urban conditions. Proposed system automatically make barrier-free map. In other words, it suggests that mapping process dose not need much labor and time. In addition, the system as mentioned above makes more useful barrier-free map using Remote Sensing imageries as a background. Combination of remote sensing, RTK-GPS and GIS applied to barrier-free map prepared by local government improve rapidly life style for wheelchair users
