Rendered Barcelona's and future Bucharest's network using Urgel23's and Cosmin's geographical maps - stations' directions in relation to one another should be generally correct!



And Barcelona's official map of Lines 1-5 for comparison (I don't know why they use varying angles for the lines)...

Great job, Neobie! I shall post your Bucharest map on the Romanian section.

I wanted to do a schematic map to accompany the geographical one, but I got shit to do at the moment.

Stylized but geographically-based subway map of Seoul, with official map for comparison.

(The official map coils its lines to fit the map onto as small a space as possible, but then you get the west-east Surisan-Oido stretch on line 4 looking like it runs east-west instead.)

which is the most informative tube map that you guys have set eyes on? ive been trying to analyse what are the different kinds of useful information one can pack into a map without it becoming a visual mess.

Neat! Just wondering how you're going to add line 9 in?

Define '(most) informative'. For me, the clutter of information that constitutes today's New York Subway Map, which does not only display subway lines, but also tries to add some roads into it and a whole lot of information about bus lines, is just about the most cluttered map I can think of. The once very minimalist Tube Map (London) is getting more and more clutter, with railway lines, handicapped-accessible signs etc. Though they do display a lot of information, they aren't informative. Less is more, I'd say - that's why I think good maps should just display the network itself with as little clutter as possible.

Here's one I made - Edmonton, Canada LRT after the extension opens in April 2010.




And my own drawing of Vancouver, Canada

Great map.
I would however leave out all the dotted bus lines, and it's not clear whether the three 'Central' stations offer free transfer or are connected with the 'black line'.

I believe the addition of travel time zones is a really good one. I'm actually surprised I haven't seen it used yet to a larger extent on official maps. It would give people a general idea of traveling times and distances, especially on a geographically distorted diagram.

its extremely useful but can only be done on radial networks such as this. otherwise it gets way too complicated to measure travel times

Good thing is that Seoul's Line 9 runs far from the city centre, so threading it in to the south of the river should be possible!

I was thinking networks with seven or more lines (give or take) should really just keep to the stations and maybe a linear landmark or two (ring road or river, perhaps). No idea why the New Yorkers like their map the way it is...

That said, is there anyway that Tokyo could not look messy? Below's a kinda-geographical (especially in "downtown") Tube map of Tokyo...


(Looks at the number of suburban lines and faints.)

Edited to add: FML has some Kanto maps that include everything! I am stunned.

The (future) Beijing system still looks incredibly neat, especially considering its 14+ lines!

(I don't have a good Chinese font to type in the characters...)

Can anyone find a geographical map of Shanghai's future system?

Urgel, when you post a map, can you please say which city it is? I always have to spend a few minutes trying to guess where the map is detailing.

I'm guessing the one directly above is of Cologne?

Did you notice that in order to see the large versions of these maps, you have to PAY for them? Seriously: why would I want to pay for poor quality MSPaint maps?

What's your point? Only thing that I notice is that you've never answered any of my questions (is your English that bad? I see you don't get any further than smiley communication this time, either)...and why do you let people pay for your maps? If this is your business, you shouldn't be hanging out carrots on this forum each time acting as though your maps are for all to see...

Oh well...
