Hamilton City Council will launch a tactile map of the central city at a 
special event on Monday (30 June).

It is the first city council in New Zealand to ask the Blind Foundation 
to produce a tactile map, which will be used by people who are blind or 
have low vision.

The map has been produced in braille and large print, and feature raised 
surfaces, textures and symbols with braille labelling to differentiate 
geographical features such as the Waikato River, landmarks and roads.
