Paris isn't showing the RER which I think would qualify as much as the S Bahn which is shown.

I don't have a .shp file for the RER, that's all. I would agree with you.

i would like to see LA in relation to these cities


I have not been on the LA metro, I only added it per request. Every other one shown I have been on.

the São Paulo system should include the CPTM lines, which operate exactly like a metro

Vancouver one has been updated with the addition of the Canada Line connecting downtown, the airport, and Richmond.

Portland needs updating

The Portland map needs to be updated to show the green line from Clackamas Town Center to City Center, opened September, 2009.

They're actually planning for extensions of the Red ,Yellow,and Orange Lines in addition to the Circle line now that they've got most of their maintenance backlog worked through.

Yea...they've been "planning" that for a while now. I'd be surprised if any of those gets built within the next 25 years.

No. I need a GIS shapefile so that it's properly projected and I can compare across other systems. That might be accurate but I'm pretty sure it has no spatial data (lat / long). I might be able to convert it though.

I'm sure a shp file exists out there, but having no knowledge of French it limits my search options.

That's really cool. I'm sure you could use a TIF/TFW file since that has geospatial data similar to SHP, not that it helps any since I have no idea where to find one of RER. If 30/10 actually happens, LA will look much less sparse.

Would it be accurate to include the S-bahn in a Hamburg metro/subway/MRT map and the S-train in a Copenhagen metro/subway/MRT map?

If the RER and S-Bahn are included in the maps of Paris and Berlin, then yes.

Hey, the only reason that Berlin map includes s-bahn is because some parts of it are almost a metro system. RER has nothing to do with metro.

Then the S-Bahn should be included in Hamburg's metro-map as well, as most parts are almost a metro system.

The S-Tog of Copenhagen falls under the Metro definition.
