The critique of the previous map on the Transit Maps tumblr that the NYC subway lines use up the same colours assigned to the NJT Rail lines could easily be resolved by using different line types. The subway isn't quite the same as commuter rail. Would a hollowed-out line for NJT work since it's not quite subway frequency?

Wow! That must have taken you a lot of work!

I see some really nice and out-of-the-box concepts implemented in your maps, e.g. the way you managed to compact the vast network of the NYC subway, or the structuring of the Paris Metro network by displaying the 2 and 6 lines as two halves of a full circle.

INAT standard would be this?

Quote:
EASY TO READ
The croweded central area of most cities is enlarged to make room for the multiplicity of lines and connecting stations.

A standard set of symbol is applied to all maps : line colors, stations, connections, line and station labeling.

Line angles are gently curved for a smooth familiar look.

EASY TO MEMORIZE
All lines are represented vertical, horizontal, or 45° inclined.

Most lines feature no more than 5 bends on their entire length.

Highly symbolic shapes are used for specific features:

Rings: circle (Moscow, Paris), rectangle (Beijing, Shanghai), stadium shaped (Berlin, Seoul), parallelogram (London)

Regularly spaced straight parallel lines in gridded street pattern cities (New York, Mexico)

Symmetry (Moscow)

Specific shapes (Madrid)

EASY TO USE
All text is labelled in both local and Latin characters.

The maps are design so as to be legible on small sized prints for pocket use and suitable for display on a wide array of supports.

@Alargule

Nights of work indeed

NYC was tough to fit in a square, especially Brooklyn.
In Paris lines 2 and 6 had been sometimes represented as a circle on advertising material decades ago, but anyway I always felt it formed a ring. They actually follow razed XVIII century city walls, replaced by boulevards, a true ring.

Exactly. Took me quite some time to define it and set the nomenclature for lines, labels and stations.

I think I saw it on The Guardian as well, it was on my Facebook feed and I recognised it.

Well done! Very happy for you.

Newcastle upon Tyne

The TYNE AND WEAR METRO Map . . .



The Tyne and Wear Metro opened in stages, from August 1980 onward. These (now rare) early maps reflect the system as it gradually opened, and also includes two "pre-opening" versions of the MAP. Below we therefore show The evolution of the METRO MAP from 1969 to the present day.

Many of us are familiar with the famous 'diagramatic' style Metro Map, on the walls of station platforms, etc. But, we often don't notice the subtle changes that have been made to it, over the years. Mind, some of the changes have not exactly been 'subtle' as the map responded (in the early years of the Metro, particularly) to the ever-expanding system, as new stretches were opened, post 11th August 1980 . . .

1 - 1969 (Pre-system opening) the original Tyneside PTE proposed route, from "Rapid Transit for Tyneside" published by Tyneside PTE



2 - 1971 (still pre-opening) and the 'diagramatic' map first appears. NOTE, the station called 'Osborne', in between West Jesmond and Jesmond stations. This map is from 'Public Transport on Tyneside, a Plan for the People', by Tyneside PTE.



3 - 10th August 1980, the Metro opens and its first public-use map shows that only the 'Haymarket to Tynemouth' (Yellow Line) stretch is open.



4 - April 1981, the 'Haymarket to Bank Foot' stretch (Green Line) opens



5 - October 1981, The Metro bridge opens (Royal opening on 6th November) and the lines extend through Monument (for the first time) and on to Heworth. The 'Red Line' for peak day-time journies, is also added to the map.



6 - 1982, the riverside part of the Yellow Line from Tynemouth, through the second level at Monument, to St James' opens.



7 - 1982, the Green Line is extended from Heworth to South Shields, and the second 'peak day-time' line (the Blue Line) between St James' and North Shields, is added to the map.



8 - 1985, Kingston Park and Pelaw stations are added and a 'mark' for the future Palmersville station can be seen on the map.



9 - 17th November 1991, the line to Newcastle Airport opens and is added to the map, on the Green Line.



10 - Here in the year 2000, showing the Sunderland extension (The 'South Hylton Line' to be more correct) under construction . . .




11 - The extension to Sunderland opens, and the map changes considerably. The 'sloping line' of the South Gosforth to Gateshead stretch is straightened, the two 'peak time' lines (Red & Blue lines) are gone, and the yellow line now diverts off at Pelaw, down to South Hylton.



12 - One thing I hadn't noticed until 'right now', is that they have re-introduced the SLOPING LINE of the central section of the map, in today's current map . . but this time it is sloping the other way!



I hope you found these evolving 'Metro Maps' (as the system was planned, then started and then extended over the years) of interest.

I, too have made a new plan for Berlin's U/S-Bahn grid.


BIGGER

I basicly follow the same approach as zidar_fr but went even further in making the plan more simple and easier to read. In this thread I wrote a longer comparison:

Looks great, but how about making the circle circular?

And dashed lines usually stand for future extensions.

Well, the intention to this plan was to simplifiy the lines. To make the S-Bahnring a circle would introduce a symetry that the real city does not have (and also not the railroad system).

When I change the S-Bahn-Ring to a circle or a octogon or another regular and symetric shape it would mean to make certain lines more complex again,
because with such a strong symetry there should be other concentric circles in the design and/or lines that follow the axis of the circle.

However, showing the Stadtbahn (the S-Bahn between Westkreuz and Ostkreuz) NOT as a straight line with no bends allows to show a lot of other lines very elegantly with no bends at all. Also in reality the Stadtbahn is no straight line.

But its a good idea that I really put a lot of thought into too. These are 2 earlier versions where I had an octogon for the s-bahnring as a base (and even a square in the second one):

http://www.silizium-net.de/zeug/octo.gif
http://www.silizium-net.de/zeug/octo-square.gif

However, I don't think its as elegant as the non-symetrical versions, because the real system is not symetrical either.
But anyway, its really a decision if you want to take the S-Bahn-Ring as a base for the whole plan and subordinate anything to that or abandon this idea and just try to simplify all lines as I did.
