British designer Mark Noad has redesigned Harry Beck’s 1931 classic version of the London Tube Map to show the routes and distances between all London stations in a more geographically accurate way.

He has identified a major problem with the current Tube map, which is that when you look at the map it is hard to judge the distance between the stations, and their locations. So Noad has developed a Geographically accurate map of the tube.

Since Beck developed his revolutionary new tube map released in 1933 several new lines have been added, making his original map more crowded.

Here are some images of the different tube maps over time, and how they’ve evolved.
