I remember the data visualisation project that I had for my design class … it made me realize how difficult these things are!!! Here are two versions of NYC’s subway maps … I actually like the old one rathe than the one we have right now.

    Yeah they really don’t work … maybe it works for you because you’re logged in? All I get is “Not Found
    Sorry, but you are looking for something that isn’t here.”
