Version 2.0 of my subway map

Recommended Posts

Since I did one for the commuter rail, I figured ill do an updated subway map. It is based off the 1994 map with some extra features I added in, such as the emphasis on weekend service.

This is awesome. I've always loved this style over the ones that came after it.

 

im glad you like it, took me about a month of on and off work to do :P

Although, looking it over closely this time:

 

I see your point about the semi-transparent bullets and lines being part-time, but they might be just a bit hard to see being that light, especially orange and yellow... maybe darken them a little so they're easier to see but not so much that you can't tell the difference between a full time line and part time. Still a beautiful map.

 

And nitpicking a bit here -- Main St Flushing (7) is underground. You missed a tunnel segment there. :P

Whoa!! Great :tup::tup: map! That must have took forever to make!

I especially love the Akzidenz-grotesk font! :cool:

Looks great. From the Aksidenz font (which I think the MTA should re-adopt for its station signs and maps) to the portal symbols showing you where the trains come above ground to the parenthesis and brackets denoting part-time and terminal stops, it's a very nice job.

Excellent Map :tup:

But I found that the Tunnel Segment symbols on the (N)/(Q) near Queensboro Plaza and on the (7) near 45 Rd are facing the wrong way.

You're also missing a Tunnel Segment symbol near Main Street on the (7)

It's breath taking! The only thing I dislike is the faded part time routes. I have to strain my eyes to see the (:P(Z)<5><6><7> etc... (It seriously hurts my eyes) Other than that, it's good.

-Norton gives me a "bad site" warning when I open the image.

-SIR is way off scale, I think you should leave it out considering there is not much more than a map.

-Missing Wilson St (L) open air platform

-(S) Botanical Garden is in tunnel

-As above, Main St (7) is not in tunnel, Astoria/LIC portals wrong way

 

The faded part time routes aren't that bad.
