Customizable vector map for visual impaired ppl
As part of my Bachelor Thesis I investigated accessibility for digital maps from the angle of visual impairment. Taking advantage of characteristics of vector maps, one of the results is a highly customizable map.
I developed two types of target profiles, one for the most common types of color blindness (see illustration) and another for strong visual impairment using hight contrasts. Furthermore the user can customize parameters like colors of features and text properties. Finally a textual representation of geodata, like streets and description of POIs, is offered as a list so it can be easily accessed by screen readers.
