In this case, these maps give people insight into the special characteristics of a given city. Each city has its own appearance. It is usually determined by geophysical conditions, for example by sea, land or mountains and the places where people meet and move.

For Instance, a city generally has streets and squares. In most cases the streets run centrally or the squares lie in the middle of the city. If you look on a map and you find such places where the most streets converge, this is often where people meet and where you will find the action or life of the city. These places often have cafes and shops and are also the places where people would like to go.

Points such as train stations or transportation lines, including streets, are the foundation to understanding a city and knowing where you are, and where you want to go. This is especially true for popular places such as main stations and airports are significant access points to give visitors helpful orientation. In order to accomplish this, bringing these points together in a specific arrangement and correlated with geophysical conditions, it will show the action is in a given city and gives visitors a schematic model as well as an overview of the city.
