Neat map of the DC Metro. When I visited DC in 1995, I didn't even know the subway even existed.

Here's a little map I put together of the Helsinki Metro, plus dream extensions. The M1 and M2 lines are in partial existence currently, with the extension west of Ruoholahti to be operational in 2015. The M3 and M4 lines were inspired by the City Ring in Copenhagen.

BTW,I will focus today on my map making on MSPaint,since I got to figure out that map making program.

I didn't use a map-making programme as no such thing exists for metro maps (except for very basic maps). I used Adobe Illustrator which is what the majority of people in the industry use for this work.

Thanks for all the compliments, I have quite a few other maps that I'll have to dig out and share.

I use OmniGraffle, which is pretty decent. It's nothing like Illustrator, but once you get the hang of it it's pretty easy. The downside is it's still like $100.

Yeah, that's what I don't like. All of these programs are neat, but cost money. For now, I stay with MS Paint, lol.

There's Inkscape, which is free and the closest open source competitor to Illustrator.

Its not really that hard. Read about which mouse buttons and keys to press to attach nodes and edit lines, then turn on the grid so things snap.

Speaking of Inkscape (I've heard about it from a friend of mine who does transit diagrams too), is it possible for me to download it on a flash drive and use it to open on a computer other than my own laptop? I mean, I'd love to use it myself since I concoct so many transit route ideas, it's just that I mainly rely on hand drawn sketches...

You sure? Because if it is possible, then I can use part of my free time creating those maps I have on paper and translate then to Inkscape, and I won't need to worry about my computer slowing down because of it... and hopefully, I can use it on any computer I happen to run to.

But you believe it is possible? I'll check it out when I head to San Francisco.

And by the way, can you teach me on the basics too, please? I'll tell you via PM when I get it.

Completely surprised to find no mass transit in Milwaukee anywhere, so here is the concept of the "MRM" (Milwaukee Rapid Metro)

I thought the east section of downtown would be important to cover
