The Real Underground Map

The Real Underground Map by Fourthway allows the user to see the underground map morph between the current one, Harry Beck’s original and the ‘real’ map which is geographically correct. It’s really interesting as it shows the true proximity of stations, which is something I find visitors to London don’t seem to realise. Many of the stations are ridiculously close to eachother (eg. Charing Cross > Embankment), especially in central London. Whilst this is fun to see, I still think the current map is far easier to understand as a navigation tool.
