Abstract

For a PhD research, we are investigating the recognition and systemization of common categories of graphical elements to build a Graphic Program (GP) that is used in Planimetric Projects (PP) construction and could also benefit computational visualization techniques. This study is being developed from an in-depth analysis of current PP examples -like Tokyo, London and Paris underground maps- and aims to obtain methodological and graphical results. The aim of this research is to identify and implement a possible order and relational rules of graphic planimetric elements. This analysis will help to improve the clarity of urban transport project diagrams and avoid incoherencies, in other words, make better visual communication. Overall, the results will show the importance of having a GP as a model for the creation of a new one and the existence of visual and conceptual hierarchies into Planimetric Language (PL).
