Touch-maps for persons with dissabilities

In the summer of 2004 the construction of touch-maps for visually impaired people was completed, in order to help them understand, have a good sense of direction and move more effectively in the University and in the Library area.

The aim of the touch-map construction is to facilitate the access of the visually impaired people to the basic public areas of the University and of the Library.  Additionally, the mapping of the greater exterior area  around  the University was regarded as necessary so as to be more accessible.

This project has been accomplished within the framework of OPEIVT II (Operational Programme for Education and Initial Vocational Training)(3rd CSF / OPEIVT II / ACTION 2.1.3 d) with the title: Special mapping of the University of Macedonia .
