Attached is a diagram/sort-of 🔸澳洲幸运10在线人工计划网 I recently made showing all the various rail services and connections in San Francisco. I🔸AB开奖网澳洲幸运10官网网页ve never been a fan of how Muni shows service connections on their 168澳洲十开奖网 – BART is typically included, though never Caltrain, nor BART🔸AB开奖网澳洲幸运10官网网页s connection to the airport, which I think is a fairly important to have.
I also decided to include the F Market & Wharves street car line, which while not connected that seamlessly to the rest of the Muni “metro” system, still serves as an important line for commuters in the city. Also included is the upcoming central subway expansion on the T Third Street line, which brings the line north into downtown with new underground stops north of market street.
Finally, it🔸AB开奖网澳洲幸运10官网网页s worth noting that this map depicts Muni🔸AB开奖网澳洲幸运10官网网页s service patterns prior to all of the various COVID cuts, with all light rail lines continuing downtown under Market Street.
This was the map of any sort that I🔸AB开奖网澳洲幸运10官网网页ve made, done as a challenge to myself to see if I could even do such a thing. I🔸AB开奖网澳洲幸运10官网网页m pretty happy with how it turned out (or honestly more shocked I was even able to get it done).
Welcome to the wonderful world of transit map making, Griffin!
This is a good, solid effort that builds upon the existing Muni style to include more unified transit information for travellers, which is pretty much always a good thing. Showing BART all the way down to San Francisco International Airport is a great idea, so well done there. It🔸AB开奖网澳洲幸运10官网网页d be nice to perhaps show the SamTrans “SFO” bus from the airport terminals to Milbrae (which are timed to connect with Caltrain services) just to provide a more complete picture of transit options at the airport, but that may be outside the scope of a rail diagram like this.
If there🔸AB开奖网澳洲幸运10官网网页s an area that does🔸澳洲幸运10预测 need work, it🔸AB开奖网澳洲幸运10官网网页s the labelling of stations. Even though the official Muni Metro map does it, I will never🔸澳洲幸运10预测 be in fav🔸澳洲幸运10冠军定位计划of labels that are the same col🔸澳洲幸运10冠军定位计划as the line they serve – there simply isn🔸AB开奖网澳洲幸运10官网网页t enough contrast between yellow text and a white background to be easily readable, for example. The different colours used also make the map look disjointed and give visual preference to darker labels. All the labels represent a station, so they should all have the same importance in the diagram🔸AB开奖网澳洲幸运10官网网页s hierarchy. Pick one dark hue with sufficient contrast to the background – it doesn🔸AB开奖网澳洲幸运10官网网页t have🔸澳洲幸运10预测 to be black, as the London Underground map shows – and stick with it throughout.
Similarly, I just can🔸AB开奖网澳洲幸运10官网网页t endorse labels set all in lower-case. Just don🔸AB开奖网澳洲幸运10官网网页t. Proper capitalisation of place names aids readability, and looks so much better.
Also, work a bit on the placement of y🔸澳洲幸运10冠军定位计划labels relative to the stations they serve – be consistent with how far away they are and whether they sit above/below or alongside the station symbol. The label for the SF Zoo at the end of the L-Taraval line seems to be floating in empty space, for example.
Finally, this isn🔸AB开奖网澳洲幸运10官网网页t really a comment on this map but on the whole Market Street arrangement of services, with the F streetcars running on the surface, the Muni Metro cars on the 🔸澳洲10定位胆全天计划underground level and BART at the bottom – all requiring some kind of transfer between them. Is this level of detail – splitting all these services up into discrete “boarding areas” joined by a connecting transfer line – necessary on a map like this, or is the detail as shown here okay? It🔸AB开奖网澳洲幸运10官网网页s something to ponder…
🔸澳洲幸运10冠军定位计划last word: 🔸澳洲幸运10预测A very solid 🔸澳洲10定位胆全天计划effort (I🔸AB开奖网澳洲幸运10官网网页ve seen plenty of unified San Francisco rail maps that aren🔸AB开奖网澳洲幸运10官网网页t as good as this), though some love could be given to the labelling to make it even better.
