Hi all

I've seen great maps here in this forum!, i'm gonna give my little piece from Spain. Here attached the motorway map and the high speed train ( current ; being-built ; and planned network ) from Spain.

The comments in the map are in spanish, but i think is understandable easily!

This maps are so big so i'm gonna give you the link, and try to download the file from your browser:

^ There's about 12,000 km of them in Spain! Of course look just at the thick lines, all colors, but only dark, the light lines are planned freeways ("planificadas"). I don't know what the broken lines represent (I don't know what "en obra" means, maybe "under construction").

OK, I'll try to make a translation:


Autovías de acceso urbano: Urban access highways.

Autopistas AP-XX en funcionamiento: Existing AP-XX (tolled) highways.

Autopistas AP-XX planificadas: Planned AP-XX (tolled) highways.

Autopistas AP-XX en obra: AP-XX (tolled) highways, under construction.

Autovías autonómicas en funcionamiento: Existing Autonomic (those which don't depend on state administration, but on Autonomous Communities' administration) highways.

Autovías autonómicas planificadas: Planned Autonomic highways.

Autovías autonómicas en obra: Autonomic highways under construction.

Autovías A-XX en funcionamiento: Existing A-XX (not tolled) highways.

Autovías A-XX: Planned A-XX (not tolled) highways.

Autovías A-XX en obras: A-XX (not tolled) highways under construction.

Hmm, from the banner it looks like "Australia Day" is over! And it's still not midnight in at least three states!

There are many excellent rail maps to be found on the Internet. The Australian one above comes from http://www.railpage.org.au/railmaps , which contains many other excellent clickable maps of this continent showing passenger traffic frequencies, and interlinking with timetables. covers New Zealand as well.

This apparently inspired efforts abroad. Jean-Marc Schwartz has provided excellent maps of France & Canada: although I've printed out the maps, I can't find the URL in my favourites for the moment. Not only do these maps provide traffic density info for the entire French network, they're attractive enough to hang on your wall (I put them in a "display book"). I'm afraid Canada's network is looking a bit ravaged.

I've also made a great UK rail atlas: here's a good place to start ... http://www.nationalrail.co.uk/tocs_maps/maps/ .

For Europe in general, I'm pretty sure http://www.europrail.net/maps/maps.html was the site I spent half my monthly quota on, but it's now either offline, defunct , or I've got Altzheimer's.

There's also some great Japanese sites ... http://www.infomapjapan.com/images/map/tokyo-JR.pdf , for instance.

Thanks for that, I split it into two A4 portrait images & printed it out.

My Spanish isn't great, but I think i've worked most of it out. I presume "estudio de viabildao" means 'viability study" and "estudio informstivo means "information study". but "en dia o proytecto" & 'estrechia" ?

Looks like some pretty serious feasibility studies in Southern Spain ...

PLease try to download the big map not the thumbnail!

The bigger map has a detailed description of all the maps. The problem is that are written in spanish, but in this world with a dictionary....

Not all are free, the light green ones are toll motorways, but the other ones are totally free, ones from the central government and the dark green ones are made by the regional governments.

The non continous lines are motorways that are being built currently, and the semi-transparent ones are planned ones. The different colors ( different to light and drak green ) are to separate the A-XY, being the X=1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 made in different colors.

The high speed train-map have contious black lines ( lines in servce ) , non contious black lines ( being built ) , and semi-transparent black lines ( planned ) , and the other are the traditional normal speed train lines ( different types of lines , diesel, and electrical.... )

If you have more questions, ask them, i will answer them!

Good translations!

ok these words are more difficult:

The translation of "En DIA" is , that this project is being evaluated by the Ministry of enviromental issues and nature. The translation of DIA ( Declaracíon de Impacto Ambiental ) , is "nature and enviromental impact declaration", that is absolutly necessary to start defining the project and then start the building.

After the possitive answer of this DIA evaluation , starts the definition of the detailed project ( project status in the map )


And the last word.... "estrecha". It's important to remark that the spanish railway network has traditionally made with a wider railway that the european railway. The new high speed trein network is compatible with the default size of railway, and in the future all the network is going to be compatible with the european network.

The word "estrecha" means narrow. So this narrow lines ( the red ones ) have narrower lines than the normal spanish railway network. This is because the difficult orography that the north of spain has, and this narrow railways are prepared for this difficult zones.

You cant! Its SVG for a reason, use opera browser to view it in all its glory, or install the adobe svg plugin.

For the lazy butts there are raster versions however:
