Description: This article evaluates the relative strengths of different ways to make tactile maps, including new photopolymers (plastics that harden with exposure to light) and computer-assisted design (CAD). Photopolymers yield crisp and precise images and produce excellent masters for vacuum forming maps. CAD allows for quick design and proofreading and the easy modification of images and text. High-quality tactile maps can be easily produced and refined by almost anyone using this technology. Journal of Visual Impairment and Blindness, (91)2, pp. 61-65. (January/February 1997)

Tactile Maps
article/periodical Report a problem!
Description: This article reports on two experiments that investigated 59 children's ability to estimate distances from a map. In Experiment 1, totally blind children, children with residual vision, and sighted children were given a map showing the position of three objects on a path, two of which were present on the actual path. The children were asked to use the map to work out the position of the third object. The visually impaired children performed less well than did the sighted children, and an analysis of the children's strategies indicated that the majority of visually impaired children did not know an effective way to work out distances from the map. In Experiment 2, the visually impaired children were given a brief training in how to calculate distances from a map and then they were retested. After training, the children's performance improved.
