PASSENGER-ORIENTED ERGONOMIC DRAWING OF DIAGRAM MAP FOR CHINESE RAILWAY PASSENGERS’ LINES

Junmin Yi

Abstract

The diagram maps for passengers’ lines of China Railways presents a basic reference for decades, however, it can’t meet the demand of Chinese passengers today and it can’t catch the pace of the achievements and expansion of China Railways. Based on a marketing perspective for caring passengers, brand new diagram maps of Chinese Railway and its High-speed Railway (CRH) with a planning horizon up to the year of 2020 are designed and drawn by using the theories and methods from both the subjects of ergonomics, visual communication design and graph theory. These graphs will convey a new image and modern information of CRH to attract potential passengers, and help to improve the railway service quality.
