Redesign D.C.'s Metro With an Interactive Mapping Tool
Inspired by a Wired article showcasing "fantasy transit maps," web developer Shannon Turner has created an interactive web tool allowing users to redraw Washington, D.C.'s transit system. DCist's Rachel Kurzius explains:
The first thing visitors see when entering the site is a grid, like graph paper. They add a Metro map, or a Metro map that also includes the forthcoming Purple Line (which is a Maryland Transit Administration project) as a template, or they can start from scratch.
Turner has publicized the code for the site, which is interactive and highly customizable, offering options for station names. It's also shareable, supporting downloads and collaboration. Create your own transit system on Metro Map Maker here.
