Andy Skinner continues his work on accessible basemaps with his latest blog article A gray accessible basemap. The goal is to improve the legibility of the basemap so that someone with a visual impairment can access the content. In particular, to have the map meet WCAG (Web Content Accessibility Guidelines) standards, and the US Federal ‘Section 508’ equivalent. The maps are single-color, so color-blindness is not an issue.
