Abstract: There are many different forms of orientation aid available to help blind or visually impaired individuals navigate the built environment.  Tactile maps are one such aid, and are an essential part of wayfinding for those with limited or no sight. Whether it is walking to a desired location, finding their way around an office building or visiting an amusement park, blind and visually impaired people can perform tasks with the same independence as sighted individuals through the use of tactile maps.
