Skyscraper Forum

For the best, most up to date, relevant planning and development information on the web, forum.skyscraper.com is hard to beat. There are some very smart, and very thoughtful people on the forums there. My hat is off to 'arkhitektor' for producing this very fine diagram:

Transit maps really need to be done at two scales-- a diagrammatic 'system map', and a scaled 'station area map'. Trying to do both with a single image has serious problems for either purpose.


  1. That is a fine map indeed. Is this going to happen?

  2. All of it is under construction right now. The orange and green lines start public operation on August 9th. I'm pretty excited.
