ABSTRACT

Today, there is an increasing number of studies on map making methods that can produce a tactile map suitable for personal use at low cost. This study proposes an automated tactile mapping system for general users having no knowledge of cartography and braille. The system builds cartographic data from geographic information database which is based on the seamless digital map of Korean. It also provides map design functionalities in the web environment. The map elements and symbols design rules comply with the national guidelines of tactile maps. The machine is employed for rapid and easy production of personal tactile maps. As the online mapping services are contributed to the proliferation of personal mapping, the automated tactile mapping system can be expected to be used as a method for personal tactile mapping.
