River Transit Maps

Natural Features, Urban Language

Awarded Most Unique @ WLIA 2021
Honorable Mention @ CaGIS 2011

Maps of a few dozen major North American river networks rendered in the style of urban transit maps: straight lines, 45-degree angles, simple geometry. The result is more of an abstract network representation than you would find on most maps, and it’s not meant to be taken too seriously — I would not recommend actually transiting through these rivers, as many portions of them are not navigable. But they do, nonetheless, connect us.
