3D London Underground Image

Readers maybe aware of our on-going work to build a 3D map of the London Tube network. Depth information is hard to come by due to issues of security therefore the work has concentrated on creating a 3D geographic location map.

Aimed at creating a ‘plasticine‘ look to the routes the interactive image below illustrates a work in progress produced so we can easily identify the errors. Double click to zoom in and drag to pan:

The final cleaned up version will be online shortly.

You can also view the image full screen (recommended).

Thanks go to Simon Clarke who produced the original geographic tube map. Simon’s site is currently under reconstruction in the meantime take a look at other London Underground diagrams.

    My favourite is the one that shows links between stations that are within walking distance – it really does come in use sometimes.
