This atlas was the first intended to be used by the blind without the assistance of a sighted person. In raised symbology, the atlas shows the outline of each state, rivers and other water bodies, cities, longitudes, latitudes, and mountains. Accompanying embossed text describes the map features in some detail, and the state’s area, population, climate, commerce, etc.
