Digital Discussion: Making Modern Maps

May 14, 2020 | 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm

Free Online Discussion

Transportation maps for the New York region evolved gradually — helping riders navigate the region and marketing mass transit as a modern, desirable choice for commuters. Even as the system grew more complex after the consolidation of the private and public subway systems in 1940, mapmakers experimented with different styles and colors to simplify the most significant information for quick comprehension.

Join Curator Kathleen Hulser for a digital discussion on the journey to create a modern transportation map for New York. Learn how innovations in map design and communications in the 1950s and beyond enabled transportation maps to take on a brighter, cleaner look.
