Let’s be honest here, I’m writing this so there’s a post this month. Here’s what I got so far:
The routes are about 3/4 done. After that comes water, an index, express-local services (I do have an updated system now, thanks everyone), a grid, (maybe) prefectural borders, and icons for interchanges with the Shinkansen, limited expresses, coach terminals, and ferries. If we’re very, very lucky, the routes should be done by the end of next month and the whole thing should be done by the end of January. This…is going to be the biggest map I’ve ever done, at least 18000 x 18000 in .png form. Here’s, er, here’s hoping it uploads without any problem.
After this comes the crayon map of Los Angeles and a proper future-proofed redesign of the Barcelona Metro map, which looks great at a glance but has some pretty serious flaws and baffling design choices. I also have a request for a map of the Indianapolis bus network, but I want to see what happens with that restructure referendum before I really get started on it.
