We introduce a multi-scale embossed map authoring tool (M-EMAT) that produces tactile maps of indoor environments from the building's structural layout and its 3D-scanned interiors on demand. Our tool renders indoor tactile maps at different spatial scales, representing a building's structure, a zoomed-in of a specific area, or an interior of a room. M-EMAT is very easy to use and produces accurate results even in the case of complex building layouts.
