Here is what I was thinking for Milwaukee (with apologies to CNB for using his work):

Is this Light Rail (Streetcar) lines or is it Heavy Rail (Trains)?
Have a look at my map that has Light Rail (Streetcar) lines

I will point out that the central crossing and red line are EAST of the river, otherwise, this is really cool!

I tried CNB; one of the problems of cutting and pasting like this is that scale and perspective are really hard to get accurate between two images.

Buses on Zealand, Denmark

So I've been playing around with Google Map Maker for some time, and it resulted in this:

This island is roughly 100km wide and 200km tall and contains almost 2 million people.
These are close-ups from the centre and a rural town.


Red lines are frequent lines, yellow lines are 'standard' lines, blue lines are frequent express lines, and green lines are extra/rush hour services. I haven't drawn railway lines, as they are already marked on the map. Feel free to change the base map to one more comfortable for viewing by using the small arrow in the bottom left corner of the white box
The bus stops aren't marked on the map, because markers will not zoom with the map. I have imagined the stops in the same places as currently (with minor, insignificant, modifications), and express/limited stop lines will only stop at important stops. I have uploaded a document to Google with all the lines and their headway, bus size and route splitting, among other things.

The map:
https://mapsengine.google.com/map/vi...w.kdxtsVLL1V48

Google document:
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/...kE&usp=sharing

BONUS MAP!
There are also night buses in Copenhagen area, I have made such a map with buses on Zealand. The few lines are also included in the Google document. Night buses usually serve rail lines not served at night, but also some areas outside railway lines. The red lines also run during the night, sometimes on a slightly different route.
https://mapsengine.google.com/map/vi...w.ktYOWHywIRfY


So, I would be very grateful if you would tell me what you think, and if you would like to see a similar map of Fyn (the smaller island to the west). I appreciate your thoughts!

For the first time in forever I have started posting again on SSC.


I will post what I like most in my maps collection.

Firstly, my Darfit-Lara-Onw Ytic Metro map, which, yes, I made on Paint and it's no surprise I loved this map. The metropolitan is in my self-named country (you may know my name or not), and Onw Ytic, in my language, is Now City, which I named after my impatience. The thick silver line is the national railway, while the thin silver line is the Airport Express. I need to find a way to fit in the stations in the map especially in those overcrowded areas.

The picture: [IMG]http://oi61.************/2pq3jgn.jpg[/IMG]

I also recently completed my LRTacloban. You may know this city from the famous devastating Typhoon Haiyan (locally called Yolanda). It's true that the LRTacloban won't come true until Tacloban area rises fully and urbanizes.

The map:https://mapsengine.google.com/map/ed...E.kFbQuCc0kLtM

Tell me if you prefer having the Tolosa Line take up the Tanauan Line's part from Malaguicay to San Salvador Street.

Tell me what you see and feel about the maps. Suggestions are welcome.

I am still working on numerous Philippine rail transport maps (a lot on paper), of course which is fictitious. Also, since I have the ability to import a copy of my classic Maps projects into Maps Engine, I'd expect a lot of posting maps.


By the way, CNB30, you can't have all limited service stops and interchanges on your latest map.

(They Aren't Limited Service, I just chose the hollow ones for aesthetic purposes. Actually, there aren't any limited service ones here in general.

So you base the map off the aesthetic criteria? Well, okay

(Yay! Happy 900th post!)

I already imported my Tallinn Metro map to Google Maps Engine and will finish it there.

As I say, "If you give a city name on MISC | Fantasy Network Maps, you make a transit map for it."

I started two new projects, one being the Kalibo-Caticlan-Boracay Rail Transport, which is composed of a metro system in Kalibo, commuter rails around northern Aklan and major points in Boracay, a cable car system in Boracay (does anyone remember?) and LRT in towns such as New Washington and Ibajay.


Also greeting my Antipodeans in Cuiabá, Brazil with a plan for an expanded LRT system in Cuiabá and its neighboring Várzea Grande which make up a metropolitan area of nearly 900,000. The current system only has two lines, one line encompassing both cities and one for Cuiabá.


More projects too are going to be completed (yes, they're in Maps Engine, since I don't buy a software for metro map making), such as the Tallinn Metro, fixing of Whitehorse Metro, and some expansions of the Olongapo and the Hagåtña LRTs.
