To a greater or lesser degree, most modern subway diagrams ignore the true geographic locations of lines and stations. Riders need to know which line serves which station, and where to transfer to get there, but actual mileage or accurate compass directions aren’t necessary to navigate the system. A time-scale map agrees, but adds a bit of information that the rider does care about: travel time. Stations are spaced according to travel time between them. (You don’t need to tell me these times are, let’s say,optimistic. They’re based on scheduled travel time from MBTA’s trip planner. Your results will vary.)
This is AWESOME. Click through the photo for the whole explanation :)
Travel times on subway maps - interesting approach, but only really for cities with few subway lines, all going in and out of the city centre.
Urbanization and globalization can be determined by different factors. A city developer, city development planner, architect, economist, legislator, investor and consumer are all participant and direct idea designer for a future city outlook. Depending on natural landscape, geographic location, economic growth scale, Technological strength, international trade boom, each city has its own unique outlook through landmarks, public buildings, business centers, public transportation systems, sewage, public parks, entertainment facilities and other service supports.
