Tube map fun

May 28, 2007

Thanks to Strange Maps for the link to Animals on the Underground website.

Having once lived in London for the better part of two decades and having stared at the tube map for many a tedious hour waiting for a train, I am sorry that I didn’t see the animals in the map that others have spotted. I could have been less bored.

No doubt this could be done with transport maps from other places as well, though I will leave it to more artistic folk than me to actually find the pictures in the maps. It needs a schematic map like London’s to work. I have looked at the New York subway map and can’t see how you could make pictures with it. Tokyo’s would work if not for the writing over the nodes. Paris looks like a winner too
