Will the real Underground Map please stand up?

It’s quite funny how maps determine the way you see a city. Take for example the Underground Map of London: when I think of that city I always think about the map first. Harry Beck created ‘the original’ in 1933, and on an amazing website you can now see how the map changed and also what the lines really run like. Well, that’s, erhm, different. Click on the images below to go to the Fourthway site to see the maps morph into other versions of reality. Thanks for the tip, Jonathan of The Map Room!

A little different…

Ooooh, really?

  1. Maps are cool. I just found this site that is currently in beta testing for a mapping application called City Maps. I thought you might be interested in it since you seem to really like maps. Go sign up for the beta so you can be one of the first to see how it works and what it can do…it has some really cool features that I haven’t seen before. http://citymaps.com
