Like braille allows the visually impaired to read, a tactile map assists those who are blind to access the layout of a building, park, garden, etc... This is really helpful before going into a new area/building.
Touch Mapper makes it very easy to get custom tactile maps for any address of your choice. You can choose between ordering an affordable 3D print or 3D printing the map yourself
More from Le jardin des Tuileries - an interpretative sign - accessible to wheelchair users and features a braille inset and tactile map
Each map panel relates directly to the Bristol Legible City pedestrian system by using the same colour pallette, typeface and iconography. The design complies with the DDA requirements for type size, contrast and their suitability to be read by pedestrians and people in wheelchairs. The Bristol Eastside project area had additional constraints such as narrow streets and the need for a design that was proportional to the landscape.
