London Tube Lines: Growing the Network

Below is a quick draft movie of our latest work with the London Tube map. The movie was created to test the concept of ‘growing’ the tube lines with the thought of having they grow according to the date of construction in a future version. Various bugs now need to be fixed (Jubilee Line is the wrong colour – oops) and stations have to be tweaked etc but we thought we would put it online for those interested:

A new movie will appear soon as its ready along with a tutorial if anyone would like to know how its done 🙂
