No Illustrator? Really? I can't even think of how you made those maps without it.

Cartographic genius, I tell you!

oops, sorry JC. i meant the train part. i have the original map (created in macromedia freehand, embellished in adobe illustrator) in a "shitload" of layers, including streets and parks and such. speaking of which, i see that i left the green thingy for parks in the legend then didn't leave the parks layer turned on. brilliant.

anyway yeah. just the train part took 20 minutes. almost as long as it took me to explain this.

Wow, these are fantastic. I have to find myself a better copy of illustrator. The one I have no doesn't seem to have all the correct tools.

Here is a little diddy i put together from seperate Maps. It is a complete Track Map of the Chicago L, compiled from segmented maps available from Chicago-L.org. I basically put them together in Photoshop and adjusted a lot of the spacing so that it would match up, added colored stop indicators, subway sections, and cleaned up a lot of text, etc... Here is a small version:



And here is a link to a much larger legible version (~1 meg): http://www.boomspeed.com/atucker7/Ch...p3_reduced.jpg

NICE!! ^

Here's a new updated St. Louis map I'm doing. I'm going to do my own symbols and things later. For now I just used some from Illustrator.

Are there any transit systems that don't use the bold colored lines and sans-serif font style on white background style?

I've mostly seen Montreal's Metro map on a black background.

Also, Toronto (pdf) displays their lines on a black map on their website.

Wow, what programs are you guys using to make these? I'd sure like to procrastinate by making less amateur maps.

Cirrus, a station at the Diamond in Richmond is useless as anything more than a special events station. A better station sequence south of Fredericksburg would be Bowling Green - Ruther Glen - Doswell - Ashland - Glen Allen - Glendale - Virginia Union/Lombardy - Main St. Station. And I still think commuter rail in Virginia from Martinsburg to DC via Dulles is a better solution than an hour+ Metro ride to Dulles, even if Tysons does need heavy rail.
