I have a new project in the making, which is collecting links of the official maps of all metro systems. I'm now at about 50 maps.

Here's a new page with previews of the maps: Schematic Maps

It's pretty curious to see those maps side by side. I've called the page Schematic Maps as the vast majority of them is schematic.

What do you think of the page? How can it be improved and can I run into copyright problems? People say copyrights of maps are a serious thing but on the other hand, showing only thumbnails with a copyright note and a link to the original map should be okay.

Micro, this is a great idea to have all of the links in one place!
Bravo! Dont stop working on it. But keep in mind, the official sites sometimes change which might result in a dead links.

p.s. Sei mir nicht boese von wegen den Tassen. Ich habe am Anfang vergessen, dann war ich faul und jetzt habe meine Kamera wieder zerstoert. Ich muss mir einfach eine neue kaufen, und das ist jetzt echt dringend, also hab Hoffnung

I was starting with the metros with the most stations. Amsterdam will certainly follow.

@Falubaz, Glad that you like it. I'm planning to update regularly and check links automatically.

57 maps now.

It would be 60 if I would have found Cairo, Daegu and Mumbai official maps.

I think the Shenzhen map might be incomplete.

There's one here, but i don't know if it's 100% uptodate (things move fast in China).

Small change to the page:
Schematic Maps now includes only a few larger previews of examplary schematic maps and a text about schematic maps.

The small thumbnails are now on another page:
All Schematic Maps shows thumbnails of schematic maps of about 100 of the biggest and most important metro systems.

I've noticed that it gets more difficult to find maps the smaller the metro systems are. Many smaller metros have maps in less prominant places on their websites or don't have English versions of their websites or don't even have maps, so I'll stop searching for more maps. 100 (or 99) will suffice for now.

EDIT: For convenience, here's another page with the same maps ordered by number of stations. The other page is ordered alphabetically.

I like your initiative, though I think it will be a hell to keep all the maps and links up-to-date once you've got all systems online.

Furthermore, Beck's 1933 map was probably not inspired by an electrical circuit diagram. The diagrammatic line maps in cars would be a more likely candidate.

You could even question whether Beck's map was the first diagrammatic map of any system (the diagrammatic District line map obviously preceded Beck's map by 11 years). In Berlin, a diagrammatic map for the S-Bahn was already used in 1931 (see Mark Ovenden's "metro maps of the world" for more details), which only used 45 and 90 degree angles for the radial lines, and a full circle for the circular S-Bahn line.

Thanks for that link. The page behind the link is questionable though because it does not provide any sources. But the "myths" page the quy mentions and his home page provide some more information I will have to read later. As a first measure, I have removed the circuit from my page.
