I wish to enable printing tactile maps for blind people, using mostly likely a 3D printer.
The initial goal is to produce maps that are suitable for pedestrian navigation, and so cover an area from a few hundred meters to some two kilometers across. The solution should be easily usable by the blind people themselves, thus will eventually include an accessible website that produces files ready for 3D printing, and no manual customization of the map contents should be needed.
The easiest implementation appears to be to extend OSM2World. The required changes are at least:
- Raise roads – this alone goes a long way to enabling pedestrian navigation
- Add a cube underneath the map for physical support
- Clip objects that extend outside the selected map area
My question is: does it make sense to extend OSM2World, or should I look into some other pieces of the OpenStreetMap ecosystem?
I am looking to upgrade my fathers film camera with a Nikon D70 DSLR camera. My question is will the optical viewfinder work with eyeglasses? Who read Nikon D70 review?
My dad said that he needs the viewfinder to focus to infinity so that he can actually use it while wearing glasses. I dont wear glasses myself so I thought I would check with the arscollective about this topic.
Thanks for your help in advance.
