Research into Schematic Designs/Uses

A schematic design is a simplified visual representation of a complicated system. The best example would be of a subway. The dots representing each station are placed in order but do not represent an accurate distance. The image below is of Beijing’s underground subway, it is easy to navigate thanks to the simplified line structures and colour choices.
