Abstract [en]

The icon is defined as a sign whose manipulation reveals, by direct observation of its intrinsic property, some information on its object. The London Underground Map is an example of an artifact used to represent part-part/part-whole relations of the largest underground systems of the world. It provides a powerful semiotic niche built for extraction and manipulation of relations. This paper explores the design of the London Underground Map through the notion of iconic artifact.
