1879 Map of Manhattan transportation network, Pocket edition of “The Merchant’s and Shipper’s Guide Map to the Port of New York,” by S. D. L. Taunton (1879). Before any subway tracks were buried beneath Manhattan, the city had a transportation system pieced together from privately run steam- and horse-drawn railroads (ground-level and elevated), ferry routes, continental and regional rail terminuses, and piers. #newyork #nyc #manhattan

This tourist map of Havana was published in 1949, 4 years prior to the start of the Cuban Revolution, which ended in 1959. The former owner of the map penciled in some personal destinations, including the location of the local Woolworth’s. Several yacht clubs can be seen near the military airport.

French-Serbian architect Jug Cerovic has standardized international subway maps with INAT, a guideline developed to unify the global metro network with easy to read and memorize charts. Each city’s center is enlarged, to make room for the multiplicity of lines and connecting stations. A standard set of symbols is applied to each map including the line colors, stations, connections and station labeling. Angles are gently curved for a smooth familiar look and linear paths are represented vertically, horizontally, or 45, with no more than 5 bends on their entire length. Highly representative shapes are used for specific ubran features: a ring for Moscow and Paris, a parallelogram for London, and regularly spaced parallel lines for gridded street patterns like new York. All text is labelled in both local and latin characters and are legible on small sized prints for pocket use and suitable for display on a wide array of supports.
idk what’s going on but i just got 5 new followers in one evening (when normally it would take me at least a month to accumulate so many). i’m v confused yet flattered. have i made it? is this what popularity feels like? i am baffled, but thank you mystery followers, and welcome!
i made my first real map last week on my uni fieldtrip. like made the whole thing from scratch. i surveyed the area of the valley (in the rain) and then plotted all my detail points individually by hand and plotted all the contours (not shown here). and i loved every second of it. and the prospect of doing this for the rest of my life fills me with so much joy. this isn’t the finished product but look how nice my colouring is. i’m so proud of myself. i also made loads of friends on the fieldtrip and i feel x10000 more positive about uni/my future. i’m really happy.
