Rebuilding Place in the Urban Space

"A community’s physical form, rather than its land uses, is its most intrinsic and enduring characteristic." [Katz, EPA] This blog focuses on place and placemaking and all that makes it work--historic preservation, urban design, transportation, asset-based community development, arts & cultural development, commercial district revitalization, tourism & destination development, and quality of life advocacy--along with doses of civic engagement and good governance watchdogging.

Spider map concept for WMATA

Map image by Peter Dunn.

At Greater Greater Washington, Peter Dunn introduces a spider map concept for local bus service. It happens that this particular area of his demonstration map, H Street NE, only has WMATA bus service, but in other parts of the city and other areas in the metropolitan area, there would be additional local services available.

Based on what they do in London, it's really a great concept. See "H Street bus "spider map" can demystify bus service," which is in part an extension of this GGW post, "Would personalized "spider maps" be useful for DC?."

Also see these past blog entries:

- DC as "Metro-Land" vs. constrained transit planning
- Nonbicyclist using map at bicycle sharing station

I thought I had written about these types of maps in the context of DC and wayfinding systems but can't find a posting, it might just have been in the comments section of various entries.
