Non Spatial Maps

Some maps, for example the London Underground map, are topological maps. Topological in nature, the distances are completely unimportant; only the connectivity is significant.

Famous quotes containing the word maps:

    And now good morrow to our waking souls,
    Which watch not one another out of fear;
    For love all love of other sights controls,
    And makes one little room an everywhere.
    Let sea-discoverers to new worlds have gone,
    Let maps to other, worlds on worlds have shown,
    Let us possess one world; each hath one, and is one.
    John Donne (1572–1631)
