London Tube Maps
Via Simon Brunning: interesting renditions of London Tube Maps.
- The 3D Tube Map shows various interpretations of the London Tube in three dimensions.
- The Geographically Accurate Tube Map does away with the default straight lines and tries to show the Tube Map based on where the track runs, however there has been criticisms of this map.
- The Tube Map with Walklines tries to show the distance between stations in case you decide to walk it rather than catch a tube.
- The Transport for London Real-time Tube Map attempts to show disruptions in lines in their usual tube color, disrupted stations are shown in red and the others are faded; if you click on a disrupted line or station, you get more information.
- The Interactive Tube Map integrates bus, tram, river and DLR information with the familiar London Underground Network.
- The Morphing Tube Map is a Flash Movie which gives a brief history of the London Tube and then shows how the London Underground looked in 1933 compared to present day. There are also other London Underground Maps on that page including the Tube Guru which shows interesting tourist attractions when you click a station (obscure stations get at least, a pub).
- The London Bloggers Tube Map is a "directory of weblogs written by people who live or work in london, organised by the rather iconic London Tube map (and also the central london suburban rail network, docklands light railway and croydon tramlink)".
Updated on Sunday 30 November with the London Interactive Tube Maps (requires a plug-in).
