I have opted not to include icons for interchanges on this map. The main reason for leaving them out is to avoid visual clutter. I also believe that it is superfluous information in this case on a relatively small network where lines converge along common routes.
I was originally going to include a lot more local landmarks on this map. This has been consistent feedback from some of my previous projects as people feel that they are useful to orient users to their location, particularly using a schematic map.
The one landmark that I have included is Bendigo Hospital. The only other major landmarks that I could find were local shopping centres, golf courses and parks. As a result, I opted to include suburb and locality names instead.
It would still be possible to add landmarks in a later version if that is the feedback that I receive. For now, I think the suburb and locality names are a good solution.
An early version of this map did not include street names. I have included them in this version to assist with wayfinding. This is a result of fairly consistent feedback from previous projects.
