Description of The Usefulness of Tactual Maps of the New York City Subway System



Abstract: Sixteen blind and visually impaired people used three different types of tactual maps that presented information at three different levels of specificity, and a comparable control group of 15 subjects traveled the subways without the aid of the maps. After the initial experiment, the control group was allowed to use the maps as they chose for two weeks. In-depth interviews and questionnaires disclosed that the tactual maps influenced the participants' perceptions and travel behavior.
