Standardized Metro Maps Around the World (by Jug Cerovic)

French-Serbian architect Jug Cerovic has standardized international subway maps with INAT, a guideline developed to unify the global metro network with easy to read and memorize charts. Each city’s center is enlarged, to make room for the multiplicity of lines and connecting stations. A standard set of symbols is applied to each map including the line colors, stations, connections and station labeling. Angles are gently curved for a smooth familiar look and linear paths are represented vertically, horizontally, or 45, with no more than 5 bends on their entire length. Highly representative shapes are used for specific ubran features: a ring for Moscow and Paris, a parallelogram for London, and regularly spaced parallel lines for gridded street patterns like new York. All text is labelled in both local and latin characters and are legible on small sized prints for pocket use and suitable for display on a wide array of supports.

New NYC Subway Map Elegantly Inspired By Concentric Circles

Roberts, a psychologist who lectures at the University of Essex in the U.K., focuses his studies on schematic mapping and wayfinding information. He designs maps and conducts studies to see how usable they are (he’s consulted for Transport for London, the transit agency that runs the Underground). He created a London tube map based on concentric circles for fun earlier this year and has now created one for NYC.
