Map services for the visually impaired

HaptiMap was an EU project aimed at developing map services for the visually impaired. In these services maps shall not only be transmitted through vision, but also through touch. The project was conducted between 2008 and 2012 and was coordinated by Certec at Lund University.

The Department of Physical Geography and Ecosystem Science contributed to this project with user studies and the creation of a web service for the distribution of map information.
