Accessible maps

Does anyone have information on, experience with, or ideas about accessible
maps? (I know, I'm pushing the envelope again!)

I have government agencies needing solutions and this appears to be one area
of accessibility that hasn't been sufficiently addressed.

Types of maps include:

Transportation, mass transit, and highway maps.

Land maps that would be produced by land-oriented agencies, such as
environmental departments, water departments, forest management agencies,
and natural resources management.

Topographic and geological maps.

Nautical charts, which are a type of map.

Geographic, political, and voting maps.

Thanks in advance,
