Maps You Can Hear and Touch

As I was considering the topic for this month’s accessibility blog, I came across a great article, “Maps That You Can Hear and Touch” by Laura Bliss. Given the College’s emphasis on STEM material and use of all types of maps (GIS maps, Geography maps, weather maps, etc) and the University’s growing interest in 3D printing, I thought this would be the perfect topic.


Please take a minute to read this short article. It is certainly interesting and hopefully inspiring. If you have any questions or thoughts on the topic, please let me know. I am sitting on a University committee to explore the use of 3D printing in online education.  Your insights would be very helpful as we move forward.
