My study has been released for a couple of weeks now and I am happy to report that I am reaching a large population and generating some great data.

I wanted to call to attention the fact that the study is asking people to translate their visual understanding of maps into text.  If you have any sort of  visual impairment that makes you unable to view the maps in the study but are interested in contributing I would love to hear from you.

I would really appreciate any help that will guide me through this data once it has all been accumulated.

Please send me an email at

Thank you!


Subjects are needed to take part in a study concerning Web-Mapping Accessibility.  Participants will be asked questions concerning their interpretations of maps and cartography in order to help improve the accessibility of web-mapping applications, specifically to help the visually impaired.  Time needed for the study is flexible and requires no prior knowledge.
