Abstract [en]

The physical map that has been used until now can in the modern days be replaced with digital maps available in smart phones and tablets. One disadvantage of both is that the digital maps require the user to have a fully functional sight. The problem with the research done so far is that it provides little explanation as to why developers have decided to design the maps in a specific way. This thesis has been designed to address this problem.

In order to provide the knowledge needed, a literature study was done to construct interview questions to an employee from SG Access AB. These answers and the literature study were used to construct interview questions to members and employees from Synskadades Riksförbund  (SRF). A method inspired by Cultural probes was done to improve these questions. The literature study and the answers from the interviews were then used to answer the five domain questions.

This thesis managed to answer four of five questions, and provides the basic knowledge needed to develop a tactile city map.
