  • I should note with regard to slide 63 that the YDN subway map is by Stephan Douris (not me). I was involved slightly in its planning, but mainly just wanted to show it off as a form of information visualization that came out of my old team. I realize the slide makes it seem as if I am claiming to have created that map, which is not true!

What  is  it’s  point? What  does  it  mean  to  people?   What  does  it  say?
  81. are these three ideas ofinformationarchitecturereally different?
