Fantasy Map: A Tube Map of the Periodic Table of Elements
Submitted by the awesome Gnimmel’s House of Maps, who says:
There are a lot of infographics around which are based on the tube map, and a lot which are based on the periodic table. So I decided to combine the two. Here’s a tube map of the periodic table (see also here for more details) and there’s also a periodic table of the tube map.
Transit Maps says: Science combined with a tube map equals a win in my book! It’s been a long time since high school chemistry for me, but this diagram seems to make pretty good sense, with the “fare zones” and “route lines” accurately depicting the different properties (groups, blocks, periods, etc.) of the periodic table. I especially like the ” River Thames”, which separates gases, liquids and solids — with liquids being “stations” placed in the river. This leads to Mercury — a metal that’s also a liquid at room temperature — getting its own little “lake”, a nice touch indeed.
Our Rating: Pretty darn awesome! Four stars.
