Chapter Summary

Sustainable editing is necessary in an age when the manifold possibilities of digital editing tempt the editor to be as complete and as exuberant as possible. The role of the editor is considered in the light of the way traffic engineers have handled similar problems in the past. Transparency and taking into account the human weakness and limits of users are pivotal. Especially the mindset of the present generation has to be taken into consideration. To be durable, an edition should select and order material according to transparent and verifiable criteria.
