3. You are here

We all knew this was going to happen eventually: this week's podcast is all about maps.

On it, you can hear from Stewart Mader, the founder of the Subway NYNJ campaign to add New Jersey to the subway map, who argues that improved mapping can be a cheap way to improve a transport network.

We also talk to Tim Fendley, the executive director of Applied Wayfind – the firm behind the Legible London signage – about how you go about mapping a city from scratch.

All that, plus Barbara and I discuss how maps can affect our perceptions of a city, and why it is that I like maps more than she does.


Skylines is the podcast from CityMetric, the New Statesman cities site. It's presented by Jonn Elledge and Barbara Speed, and is a Roifield Brown production.
