What's Inside:

Information architecture creates representations of a system that are different from their reality or instantiation. Metro and Tube maps illustrate this point - they often bear no relation to topography or geography of the city. They are stylised and simplified in order to support people finding their way around the system. Good information design will provide an appropriate level of detail for a map, sitemap or the like.
