From the post:
In Metrography [looksgood.de], interaction design students Benedikt Groß [looksgood.de] and Bertrand Clerc [bertrandclerc.com] and presents us with an alternative view on London. What if the street map was reshaped according to the positions of the tube stations as placed on the Tube map?
The result is a ‘warped’ or ‘morphed’ map of London, that highlights the discrepancy between the stylized metro map and the geographically correct depiction. The resulting high-resolution prints can be viewed online in all detail.
I am not sure I agree there is a “geographically correct depiction” of London or any other locale. Depends on whose “geography” you are using. We are so schooled in some depictions being “correct,” that we fail to speak up when lines of advantage/disadvantage are being drawn. That is “just the way things fall on the map,” no personal motive involved. Right.
Topic maps are one way to empower alternative views, geographic or otherwise.
