Maps for the blind

OpenStreetMappers are passionate about maps and are coming up with some great ideas for using maps in new ways. During State of the Map we saw several great new ideas including augmented reality from Layar and transport maps from Ito but the one that most impressed me was a tactile map for the blind.

Why didn’t someone think of this ages ago? Could it be that open data really does encourage innovation?
