The author of this map projects London according to his perception. It is a simplified map of two-class bracket in the society according to income. Very rich people are few and pull together in the middle near the river while those who are not very rich and is tagged as ‘losers’ where elsewhere. ’Losers’ occupy significantly greater area compared to the very rich.
What makes this map interesting is how the author projects London in his own perception and came up with a clever way to show social divide within the city. This was a simple but direct to the point representation of a person’s idea. People who can see this map can reflect and relate on their social classification, especially those locals from London itself. This may serve as an inspiration for people from other places to make their own simplified social perception of their own city.
People from London commented on the site and said that this is fairly accurate representation of London. London, according to a comment, has other wealthy areas but what distinguishes these areas, which the author labelled as very rich, is that these areas have always been wealthy. The other wealthy areas were just gentrified. Some disagree with the author about his perception of losers and gave some opinions about their own concept of rich and losers. The map achieved its objective to show the great social divide in the city and showed the locals a simpler way of visualizing their city.
The map is plain and very simple. It has no legends, no information about the producer of the map but it has a north arrow. Scale, in this map, is not needed because it is a map of how the author views the social division of London. The map may be improved if a short description is provided for the people who are not from London to further understand the map.
