Touch Mapper

Reading a tactile map

Touch Mapper is a website that allows you to create free tactile maps using a 3D printer.  If you do not own a 3D printer, a map may be ordered through the website. The developer of this tool is open to feedback and is able to customize the tool according to individual requirements.  This is a helpful tool for Orientation and Mobility.

It's now possible to print the maps also using an embosser, or on swell paper.
