United States Schematic Maps
Picture the general iconic shape of any state. Now imagine all the locations you’ve heard of—cities, vacation spots, college towns, roadside attractions, mountains, beaches, battlefields, the famous and the infamous. How many can you mentally pin onto that shape? With what degree of accuracy?
Inspired by subway maps, these schematics position and link every point-of-interest in every state. And—like subway maps—positioning is somewhat distorted, detail is eliminated, and lines are straightened to create the most simple and memorable diagram possible. By approximating relative locations in an orderly and minimal fashion, we hope to create for the observer new mental maps that endure long after viewing.
