Cartographic language has its own characteristics and its form is eminently visual. Reflecting on its importance, it's possible see the map (one of their main instruments) following the story of man. So is necessary questioning about the use of the map for those who cannot see. Within the various branches of cartography, there is the quantitative thematic cartography, which is one that examines a topic, showing how to give your space division (and / or time) according to the different proportions of the existing object of study.This work that uses amounts also recognizes several methods of representation and use of different types of variables, which will be tested here according to the possibilities of adaptation within cartography that does not take into account first sight, but touch (cartography tactile). Adapting of quantitative tactile maps will take into account the usefulness of the final product, therefore the work will take place in partnership with the visually impaired (blind and people with low vision), working for another step toward establishing the paradigm of inclusion, where all society feel responsible for changes in education, languages, architecture, etc. For all its members, admitting that if adjustments are necessary it's because it was not built so as to encompass all people and yes, a most questionable reason.
