Downloaded and took a quick look. I focus on the maps I have also drawn. The maps are lovely even though I am not a huge fan of some acute bend of the rail path, the bigger issue is that the accuracy is not as good as I expected. Perhaps the developers were too ambitious to include as many cities as possible.
*Hong Kong: They drew Tsim Sha Tsui-East Tsim Sha Tsui like a single station which is in fact an out-of-station interchange not interchangeable by single journey ticket users (who are mostly tourists) but Hong Kong-Central stations are connected by a dash line when in fact their paid area is integrated.
*London: They didn't connect Bank and Monument by whatever mean but connected Fenchurch Street-Tower Hill-Tower Gateway like a single complex and many other National Rail-Transport for London OSIs are treated in the same fashion.
*Washington: the District of Columbia diamond was poorly placed which excludes area/stations should be within the special district: Friendship Heights to Woodly Park, Takoma, Deanwood to Stadium-Armory to Benning Road, Anacostia-Congress Heights.

I also *hate* the diagonal pattern of green areas. When you zoom out to some degree, the greyed text overlaying on the pattern is nearly illegible.

One Metro World



After 5 years designing metro maps I decided to put them all together in one book:
40 maps of 40 metropolises all with a common graphic language.



It's a "coffee table" book, large, fat, with hard cover.

I am self publishing the book with a Kickstarter campaign to promote it

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects...ne-metro-world

The book contains original stories for each map + schematics explaining the network and design choices



I have published on my website the introduction to the book, you can read it here:
http://www.inat.fr/works/one-metro-world

If you want to support my work feel free to share this information with people you know who might be interested.

Havs anyone seen a map that combine the planned metros of Guangzhou, Foshan, Duanggong, Shenzhen & HK all in one map?

I once saw one which also included Zhongshan, Zhuhai, Macau (all on the Western Pearl River Delta), Huizhou (Northeast of Shenzhen) and even Zhaoqing (West of Guangzhou and Foshan, albeit with only one line).

Do you remember where?
Was it this one?

Doing a cohesive map that shows metros, commuter rail, regional rail, HSR, people movers... for the whole region with nice graphics... I don't think I'm the only one who'd love to see one.

A map, but not a network map, and not quite up to date: https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikiped...id_Transit.svg

Yes, it was that one. It is now outdated, there are way more lines planned now.

Preferably with a layer mechanism so as to turn off the lines the user is not momentarily interested in, even better with predefined class names/structures.

GEOLOCATION
The real-world location (latitude, longitude) for each point and line

STATE
(running), planned, under-construction, under-repair, disused, fantasy
Time of opening, time of closing

LEVEL
overground, underground, atground, depth/height in meters

OBJECTS
(physical) track, (route) line, station, exchange station, depot
With name(s), possibly in multiple languages/scripts, description, code

CONNECTIONS
track/line: stations in sequence
(exchange) stations: lines, next/previous station in line, travel time,
transfer paths, exits
external points (e.g. airport, railway station, port, point of interest)

FREQUENCY
Number of departures per hour, or real time schedule

STYLE AND BRAND
A line typically has an assigned colour, and possibly other properties. A station could have the same.


A map would be unlikely to have all of these features, but if the designer uses whatever features it has in a standardised manner, these features could automagically be enhanced.

Another request by fellow Wikipedian to create a Creative Commons substitute in place of the copyrighted official version for the proposed underground metro link across the Melbourne central business district (CBD).

I'm looking for the Tokyo Metro track map, specifically the connections between the various lines that are not always used in regular service. If someone could help me with this, it would be very much appreciated.

I would also like maps for the various private railways, but that's a lower priority.

‘Mini Metros’ illustrates 220 subway and light rail systems from around the world

These illustrations of the world’s subway systems by Washington, D.C.-based graphic designer and self-professed transit nerd Peter Dovak are not just marvelous, they’re also eye-opening. Called "Mini Metros,"[...]

Been working on these fore a while as an attempt to show as many rail (all rails) services as possible for each line in each city. Still in proofreading stage regarding data and real-world information. As I added more and more features, the overall design was getting very dense, so I stopped at a point. Comments are welcome.

Looks fantastic! Only slight comment is that, in some cases, the distance between the station marker and label could make it a little tricky to track across. Given that the majority of station names are road numbers, maybe these could be added inside the station markers to aid users unfamiliar with the system?

--How are they doing with expansion? Seems like little if any new track is being built.
