Interstate Highway as Metro

After clicking through Levi's last post, I stumbled upon this article in the archives.  I'm a huge fan of subway maps and how metro systems are designed for wayfinding, so this image really resonates with me.  In my opinion it does a better job of diagrammatically laying out the US Interstate Highway system than previous attempts, and uses a color scheme/logic that is halfway between the iconic London Tube map and Madrid Metro's latest map design.  Click the map for the full-scale version.

Conductor turns the New York subway system into an interactive string instrument. Using the MTA’s actual subway schedule, the piece begins in realtime by spawning trains which departed in the last minute, then continues accelerating through a 24 hour loop. The visuals are based on Massimo Vignelli’s 1972 diagram.
