Abstract

The development of railways in Mexico has become a landmark of modern life, as in several other countries. Interesting information design objects have been created for the construction and development of the railway system, such as maps and charts. However, the knowledge related to such objects has remained in the realm of cartographers and other specialists. The study reported in this article, shows that information design can help us understand history, and be acquainted with questions, such as: why it took so much time to build one railway line, what problems were faced, what comparisons can be made, what were the consequences of the advent of the railway. This is the first topic studied that aims to develop a body of knowledge on the history of information design in Mexico.
