An Everyday Example of Architecture Documentation: Subway Maps
• White Paper
Software Engineering Institute
This white paper stems from an observation by the SEI's Paul Clements that
. . . subway maps are very good everyday examples of architecture documentation. A subway system architecture isn't a software architecture, for sure, but it's certainly an architecture. I started wondering what parts of our Views and Beyond approach to documentation I could recognize in a subway map and the associated pieces of information the public can find in a subway station.
