Totally off-topic, folks, for which I apologize. However, I have changed jobs within the accessibility field and am wondering if someone could send me the procedure to subscribe to this list. My new email address is kbun at siteimprove.com<mailto:kbun at siteimprove.com>.

Hello, all:

I don't know that these resources will answer your question specifically, Stephanie, but perhaps they'll point you and others working on interactive maps in the right directions when communicating with vendors.

I look forward to hearing and capturing what very specific guidance others may have.



Note that I've done my best to curate for up-to-date info, but please check, as needed:

Hi All,

I am interested in learning about any good examples of accessible interactive maps -- in particular, maps which display/pull from public census data. There are many products out there with totally inaccessible map interfaces and I'm looking for the most accessible alternative. Any information appreciated. Thank you.
