Axonometric Tube

Transport for London has released 124 axonometric diagrams of underground stations. Looking at stations you've walked through thousands of times is still a little confusing.

The Circle Line

One the one hand, it looks terrible. However, London Underground Simulator (Circle Line) is so detailed in all the right ways that I just want to play it. For hours.

Watch part 2 and then buy yourself a copy.

More Underground Maps

Andrew Godwin has just released an excellent mapping project, visualizing a few London Underground stations, complete with public corridors, escalators, spiral staircases and platforms. The maps are 3D models, which you can pan and zoom inside the browser. Digging into the source is also worth a look, since it uses some nice canvas and three.js guts.

Poking around his other work, the Twin Tubes map is also worth a look - the underground network with each individual track visualized.
