Wow! I'm so envious of your skills! That looks extremely professional! I don't care what you say, I'd still love to see what the subway map looked like

Love it and thanks for sharing!

A little help here from those who use Inkspace

Just wondering, how do add stations to your maps? Do you make them insade Inkspace, or do you add them with another programm (for example Paint)?

If you do it with Inkspace then how?

All map features can be produced in Inkscape including stations. Station is just a prepared complexed object which consists of simple ones - circles, squares and others with own attributes (filling color, thickness of lines, etc). Once made it can be copied and placed in designed place. To prevent the confusion is needed to distribute all of the same kind objects on different layers (layers of lines, stations, names, etc)

^ I laughed when I saw the "Lort" but it's still a fantastic map nonetheless, great job!

Heres a (REAL) network map of a local "alugueres" (renting) bus company here in portugal:

Imagine this as a commuter network.

@ Norscand: I've taken a look at your website, and it's truly baffling. I've never seen such well elaborated maps for a fantasy country.

Keep up the good work!

Shanghai metro expanding plans are crazy and we all love it every time when a new line is addes to that cool network, but there is one thing that i dont like: they plan lines, that will cross but wont be conected, which is a bit weird. Why the heck build new system and avoid transfers between crossing lines.

I think this will be the last major update to my IW metro map. Well last of this version perhaps.

Examples? As far as I can see, all subway lines are connected to one another at certain points

Oh there are more than 1 or two such points:

L11/L4 at shanghai Stadium
L8/L4 at Zongxing
L13/L4 at Lubu

and lines that cross twice but are conected only once, which make the passengers riding in circles

L3/L8 at Zongxin
L13/L1 at Huangpi
L13/L14 at Huaihai
L1/L3 at Caoxi Lu
L7/L10 at Changshu Lu

I never understand the point of two lines terminating at the same place on these maps. Why not hook them up?

It's easier to handle and limit delays on non-looped networks.

^ That and given the demand of the local area, the Central would have trains every 10 mins whereas the Downs perhaps every 20-30 depending on time of day. Hence terminating would make more sense. And so it helps the traveler differentiate between the two services

They are also joined head-to-head as apposed to side-by-side due to the fact that some services may act as through services hence it is possible to go through every single island stop and change only once. That is more frivolous though...
