The London Underground map has gone through some changes over the years, and the good people over at Fourthway, in the United Kingdom, have taken an engaging look at the differences between three different depictions of the London tube system. To show these differences, they decided to visualize the maps into a supremely clean and streamlined morphing animation.
The animation morphs the presently used map of the London underground into Harry Beck’s original design from 1933 and the “actual” geographic location of the underground — with an option to overlay a precise street map to see how things truly line up. The actual geographic location and street view help to line up the correct location of landmarks and tube stops of where they’re truly found on the map, and keeps them on the correct side of the street in some instances.
Hop over to Fourthway for the morphing map.
