Geographically Accurate Subway Maps

This Map of the London Tube Details Transportation Routes

— September 19, 2016 — World
The London Tube, as Londoners refer to their subway system, is consistently heralded as one of the best transit systems in the world, due to both its extensiveness and its ease of navigation. The well-known and recognizable London Tube map is one of the reasons for that praise, but transit critics might not laud the system as readily if the London municipal transport authority had used an authentic rendering of the subway grid.

A geographically accurate map of the London Tube has been released by 'Transport for London' under the UK's Freedom of Information Act, and it is comparatively baffling. While the augmented map in use on the Tube presents an organized series of parallel lines meeting in neat junctions, the geographically accurate map looks like a jumble of haphazard strings, showing the importance of design in map-making for mass transit.
Trend Themes
1. Geographically Accurate Maps - Disruptive innovation opportunity: Develop new mapping technologies that provide accurate geographic representations for mass transit systems.
2. Improving Navigation - Disruptive innovation opportunity: Create navigation apps or systems that incorporate geographically accurate transit maps to help commuters easily navigate complex public transportation networks.
3. Enhancing User Experience - Disruptive innovation opportunity: Design user-friendly transit maps that balance geographic accuracy with clear visual representation for improved usability.
Industry Implications

2. Technology - Disruptive innovation opportunity: Use advanced technologies, such as augmented reality or machine learning, to improve the accuracy and functionality of transit maps.
3. User Interface Design - Disruptive innovation opportunity: Apply expertise in user interface design to create visually appealing and easy-to-understand transit maps that enhance the user experience.
