Harry Beck’s London Underground map

I read that this is a masterpiece of instructional design or infographics, found at www.afn.org/~alplatt/tube.html

One thought on “Harry Beck’s London Underground map

  1. This map relieved a great deal of stress from my tour of London. While it is an extremely well put together set of instructions, it had some help. The London “Tube” is amazingly well designed. It blows the “Trains” in New York away with how well it is planned out and runs. I would argue that a good map of the New York metro would be much more impressive, simply because the New York metro system is very difficult to figure out.
