I have often found myself wanting metro maps to be geographically accurate – to line up more precisely with what is above ground. I wonder if I had grown up with more confusing but accurate maps, would I have wanted them to be more geometric?
I wonder how many things in life we simplify in order to comprehend, all without a second thought? How many things do we think are one thing (a map) when really they are another (a diagram)?
