Country maps best practise and examples.

I am currently on a hunt for an example of a map which works with Keyboard, Low Vision, cognitive and screen readers. The map must be able to zoom into a street, zoom back up to suburb level, be able to show streets of the near-by suburbs, zoom out to state level and then to the country level. I see this working okay for low vision, keyboard only users and possibly for cognitive disabilities if the map is kept simple. The challenge I see is with screen readers. So if people have examples which they have made accessible. Please let us know.

This is a new area of accessibility for myself. 😊
