Learn about designing for theme parks and tourist attractions.
- [Instructor] Attraction maps, such as the one…in front of you from the fab San Diego Zoo have…slightly different rules to normal simplified maps.…They do share some of the techniques,…but they are used in addition to navigation as something…to excite you about a visit to the attraction.…They use lot's of techniques such as projection…that's taking things from flat to a more 3D appearance…which we'll be covering in chapter four.…
But they require a lot of planning…and they are a lot of work to do.…But really, really worth it once you see them.…They require special treatment in the planning phases…because while they might appear quite small,…as this would on a leaflet, the same map could be blown up…almost to a billboard size at the front or…at various different locations throughout the attraction.…So you can't skimp on the detail.…And it's knowing exactly where to cut off.…
It's a very, very special kind of approach…to drawing a map but the reward is well worth it.…
