World Subway Maps Simplified

main1.jpg

Deciphering a subway map in any major city can be an unnecessarily arduous task, often to the point of catching a bus and never mentioning the ill-fated underground venture again.

So prepare to be doubly impressed by these striking works from Paris-based architect Jug Cerovic, who's taken the blueprints of the world’s busiest underground metro systems and helpfully filtered them into one user-friendly design.

Dubbed INAT, this simplistic brand of mapping ensures all text is labelled in both local and Latin characters, a standard set of symbols is applied to all maps, and that most lines feature no more than 5 bends on their entire length.

And if these don’t make navigating your local subway system with a hangover that bit easier, we'd advise buying a bus pass.
