Reported are the findings of a research project conducted to design easily reproducible, large-scale maps for use by the blind to improve their mobility and orientation. The emphasis was on maps varying in scale from general orientation maps of metropolitan areas to mobility maps of neighborhoods or individual buildings. The design, construction, reproduction, and reading of the maps are described. Many photographs of samples of tactual mobility maps, instructions for use, and a map reading test are included. (KW)
