I created tactile maps using a blow-up of a map and a sheet of sand
paper, which I then used to "emboss" by drawing over the lines of the
map. It worked well but was time-consuming for me to do!

Hi all,

I know this has been asked here before, but here goes again.

I was contacted by a colleague at another institution looking for
tactile maps of the world. I suggested American Printing House for the
Blind and American Foundation for the Blind. However, it seems like I
remember somebody giving another resource for such maps. Any ideas?
