AbstractThe American Foundation for the Blind (AFB) has recently demonstrated at various professional meetings the first prototype Graphic Braille Display (GBD) unit, that is capable of generating graphics for the blind. The prototype GBD involves a low production cost and it has many undesirable features at this infant stage. However, it will open a whole new world of communicating graphics to the blind. This paper explores the adaptability of the GBD device in an interactive tactual mapping environment. The GBD display mode is compared with the raster mode of processing geographic map data. Current shortcomings, possible solutions, and research directions are suggested.-Author
