Accessing maps is a very challenging task for people with vision impairment. Particularly, navigating a map using panning and zooming and finding information on the screen. 

In this project, you will work on understanding the important sections of a map, and finding the best ways to convey these information to people who are blind or have low vision. To do this, you will use Eye Tracking devices to track sighted people and determine the focused areas on a map. Then, you will use this knowledge to generate accessible maps for blind people.
