These thermoformed tactile maps are a comprehensive aid to geographic instruction and orientation. This volume contains tactile maps of all the continents, regions, and countries of the world. World Maps are reproduced from original high-quality works by The Princeton Braillists. They differ from other tactile maps in that they use clear variations in height and texture, allowing a greater amount of readable information in a given space. Thermoformed on durable 11.5 x 11" vinyl, the maps include rivers, mountain ranges, bodies of water, and other physical features. Political features include country borders and capital cities. Maps of Russia and the 50 U.S. states are presented on larger fold-out pages. The maps are labeled in braille, and facing pages have key information in braille and large print.
