Today I was reading over on Flavorwire about Mark Noad’s proposed redesign of the London Underground Tube. I found a link on his blog to this epic ongoing thread about the London Underground that began back in 2002 on Edward Tufte’s website where he posted this fun global tube map created by Alan Foale in 2002 for The Times. It’s like the Pangea approach to public transportation. I love that two of my favorite cities, Chicago and Prague, happen to be on the same line only 9 stops apart. Oooh I hope there’s a bar car.

I’m really enjoying these ceramic street map coasters by industrial designer Anders Hansen. Each coaster is formed from a different area of Oslo including Majorstuen, Parkveien, Sentrum, Kvadraturen, Sentrum Øst and Grünerløkka. Available in his shop for about $15-$22 apiece. (via behance)

A nice string map by fsm vpggru, with a quick making-of video. Would love to do something like this with a CTA map. (via make)

Update: Whoa! My friend Tim took this post to heart and made a Chicago ‘L’ CTA map.
