For dealing with those difficult intersections.
Many drivers (and especially LA drivers) know the feeling. You arrive at an intersection with no traffic light, a constant flow of traffic, limited visibility, or some combination of all three. Turning left or going straight ...

Pretty impressive collaboration of map makers.

"Earlier this month, local mappers in Los Angeles started importing building footprints from public domain data into OpenStreetMap. This is part of the local community’s push to improve building coverage across the entire county of Los Angeles in OpenStreetMap."

When I was a kid, my father brought home from I know not where an enormous collection of National Geographic magazines spanning the years 1917 to 1985. I found, tucked in almost every issue, one of the magazine’s gorgeous maps—of the Moon, St.

We’d like to make you aware of a recent ruling by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) on the use of the Clearview Font on U.S. roadways:

The FHWA has terminated its interim approval for use of the Clearview font. After 24 years of user-based research and development, the FHWA has determined that this font, which had been adopted by almost 20 states and is the standard in multiple civic wayfinding systems, is no longer to be used on U.S. roadways. The new (old) standard is the Eisenhower-era Highway Gothic.

This has broad implications for wayfinding signage design in the U.S: as of March 1, 2016, any project currently in design needs to comply; existing signage will need to be changed as it reaches the end of its “serviceable condition.” Since Clearview has been specified for wayfinding signage in your project, this ruling will impact your system as well. Note that this ruling applies only to DOT-controlled roadways in the U.S.

As you might expect, criticism of this decision is coming from many areas: from trade associations to regulatory agencies, designers to civil engineers. For your information, we’ve compiled the latest findings and opinion on our Corbin Design blog: http://www.corbindesign.com/wayfindings/2016/02/18/fhwas-u-turn-on-clearview/

Thank you.

Big change to U.S. highway signage.
Clearview is out, Highway Gothic is (back) in. Critics want to know why.

Early wayfinding.
An oblong crystal found in the wreck of a 16th-century English warship is a sunstone, a near-mythical navigational aid said to have been used by Viking mariners, researchers said on Wednesday. The stone is made of Iceland spar, a transparent, naturally-occurring calcite crystal that polarizes light

People Get Lost: You Can Fix That
Information management isn’t likely a part of the facility manager’s job description, but it should be a priority in creating an effective wayfinding system.

The St. Louis wayfinding program.
Representatives from the Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) and the St. Louis Convention & Visitors Commission (CVC) saw an opportunity when Interstate 64 was reconstructed. Rather than simply replace existing DOT interstate signs, they could create an inclusive utility that connects tourists and residents to attractions and destinations.

Introduction

WHO WE ARE
A wayfinding and environmental graphic design firm established in 1976, pioneering new concepts for wayfinding in the built environment, online, and in a wide variety of other media. As our employee-owned firm celebrates its 35th year in 2011, we continue to refine and expand the definition, and the profession, of environmental graphic design.

WHAT WE DO
Wayfinding consulting and analysis, including all aspects of communication between you and your visitor. Our clients include healthcare providers, educational institutions, cities and towns, corporate, entertainment and resort venues across North America. Our wayfinding and signage systems help millions of people find their way every day.

WAYFINDING IS...
Direction for people in motion. It considers all the tools you use to share wayfinding information with visitors: print and broadcast media, the Web, new technology, and signs in the environment. Properly designed, it ties together verbal and visual cues throughout your organization: architecture, interiors, lighting and landscape design.
