The most detailed maps I have found are from the Princeton Braillists.
I have not seen their volume on the Pacific but the one for the U.S.
and Canada is more detailed than any other maps I have found that were
not produced for a specific test, etc.

I don't know if these would meet your professor's standards but they
are much better than the tactile world maps available through APH.
They are also much more affordable. They contain many cities, rivers,
landforms, etc. and have separate maps for climate, elevation, and
other common maps depending on the volume. Their website is:

I hope this helps.
