     Sorry to take so long to respond to this request for help. I had a lot of
work waiting for me when I came back. I have a Reprotronics machine that can
raise images if they are xeroxed onto a special paper. I need some details
on how big the campus is, how big the map is that you have. I am willing to
try making a raised map. I also know a guy with a laser cutter who I think could
make a map. I made a map of the area surrounding our Charlotte NC convention site.
For those of you who haven't seen the Charlotte map; the map was created by
scanning an image and carving it with a laser cutter. The material used was
plexiglass. I then labeled the streets, buildings and other areas wity dymo tape.
For a one off copy, the process stops here. For multiple copies, a vaccuum
form mold is made and copies produced. I can be reached at (503) 627-4444 (work)
or (503) 626-7174 (Home).
