The Tactile Maps Automated Production project isn't new, but it has taken on new legs since the San Francisco Lighthouse took over the project and started work to add new features to make the maps more versatile. J.J. talks to Scott Blanks, Senior Director of Programs for the Lighthouse for the Blind and Visually Impaired in San Francisco, to learn about the latest features with the TMAP project including representation of building shapes and pedestrian paths, and how to order a map for yourself.
