I had been thinking about a way to represent the Tube network in some kind of Venn diagram for a while. I found out that in order to do so, some really weird shapes had to be involved, turning the map into a horrible mess (I’ll upload the results of that some time).
So I decided, more for aesthethical reasons than anything, to make a Tube map out of the intersections between the colours of the lines when their opacity is set at 50%. Inspiration came from this post from CASA’s kick-ass researcher Oliver O’Brien about the colours used in the network. I ended up with this map that, although doesn’t really correspond to reality, ended up being a nice piece of graphics and an alternative way of seeing the network (which was the ultimate goal of the experiment).
So here it is: The Chromatic London Underground Map
