U.S. Interstate Highways as a Transit Map

Source: Visual Capitalist
Author: Cameron Booth

Best Practices:
  • Everyone loves a good subway map, the idea to create one for the Interstate System is pure genius!
  • Very clean, very simple map
  • Terrific labeling throughout
  • Nice indicators for junctions and the ends of lines, just like we see all over the world
  • Reshaping the boundaries of the US and to make the map fit
Recommended Enhancements:
  • I can't find Cameron Booth (the creator) on Twitter to give him credit.
