IDEA 4: geographical 3D London Underground Map

October 28, 2009

This is probably one of my favourite idea’s at the moment. I have always found it amusing and quite clever how the London Underground Map is deliberately deceiving. The map is designed so it’s ‘nice to view’ – which as a result is not a true map of where the tube stations are located within London. Below is the tube map compared with a geographical map..

As you can see, they are significantly different to one another, and i feel the 3D representation of the true London underground map is an insightful and interesting idea. I was also thinking of integrating some of the well known London Underground landmarks, such as Nelson’s Column, The London Eye, London Bridge and so on.

  1. Hi, great idea, and looks good too. i think you HAVE to add the actual river Thames though. Where the stations lie in relation to north or south of the river is a nessecity IMO… Lee…


  2. Very interesting….
