The Tube map is iconic; designed in 1931 by Harry Beck, it is recognizable to tourists the world over.
It's also incredibly misleading.
The map, while beautiful in its symmetry, doesn't accurately portray distances or account for kinks in the subway lines.
However, Mark Noad has created a new map that aims to increase accuracy by including geographic truths. It's quite a project, and will hopefully help those new to the system to navigate it most competently.
It'll be strange to get used to, but - while I respect Beck's original design - I think it's a huge improvement over the 1931 map! What do you think? Revelation or heresy?
