Name of Project: London Surface Diagram

Description of Project: To develop a universal mapping system that integrates London’s public transport systems within the M25 area which can be customised for specific purposes or seen as a whole. The design of the famous Beck tube map from 90 years ago has not kept pace with the complexity of London and it is not graphically capable of integrating other transport modes. TfL now makes Beck style bus diagrams, limited by colour. London´s 700 routes cannot, even locally, overlay the tube line colours. The challenge as been to reflect London at the surface instead of below ground which otherwise is distorted by linear diagrams for individual modes.
