• Analysis – Maps • Present position • Exit • Meeting place • Restroom • Simple structure • Passage connected to buildings – Signs • Directions for the exit • Directions for the platform Gangnam Underground Mall (강남 지하상가)

Gangnam Underground Mall (강남 지하상가) • Problems – Maps • Don’t have information related to the subway – Ex. Platform – Signs • Don’t have information related to shopping – Classification of shopping malls • Stores are divided into eight sections, four cardinal points and ABCD, but the map is composed of only two colors

Gangnam Underground Mall (강남 지하상가) • Solutions – Add lacking information • Maps : Subway information • Signs : Shopping informaion – Re-classify the stores • New classification and new colors for better guidance – Find a new design of the map with all information or Find a new way to rearrange signs
