3D London Tube Map

3D London Tube Map

While we're talking about maps, here's a neat little gimmick from Andy Hudson-Smith of the Digital Urban blog. Not only does he lay out the Tube geographically (in itself nothing new), he also has a stab at making it three-dimensional, adding key buildings for effect. What he really needs on there is a sense of depth. Unfortunately, security issues bar TfL from releasing this information. Perhaps we should all count the number of steps down to platform level at our local stations and email Andy the results.

Seen from this angle the interchange stations look like liquorice allsorts. Oxford Circus looks especially tasty.


Where's the P in Hampstead? From liquorice to ham and beyond*in 3D.


Green Park's done a runner!

In all seriousness I'd love to get involved with a project to map the tube with depths and further interconnectivity, including walkways, escalators and ticket halls. Has anyone come across a project such as this?
