I created a portfolio transit map. Would be interested in any comments.


Larger version can be seen here (http://www.aureliandesign.com/Transit1.png).

No problem. Is that better?

Looks good!

The two stations on the bottom end of the blue lines don't have names though.
Purely a stylistic point, you might want to try bevelling the blue line on the corner between Bay Street and the unnamed station. Looks more friendly!

Good catch and good suggestion (though not easy to do for a more complicated map) - thanks!

No worries, if you're using illustrator there is a plug-in which will bevel or chamfer nodes for you. Costs a bit though. Otherwise, yeah, it's a pain but you'll have to do each corner node by hand.

There's a "round corners" effect in stock Illustrator that can be applied to an entire path, but if you wanted to only round some nodes, you'd have to break the path apart first.

I've finally fixed up the map a bit. Since the orignal post above used a link to the map on my graphic design website, that post now has the updated map.
