On this Web site, you can find subway maps from all over the world! To get started, all you need to do is choose where in the world you’d like a map from. Your options to start with are: Europe, America, Australia, Africa, Asia and the Middle East. Each one has its own drop down box, so you can choose the city’s subway you want a map for. Cool, huh?!
The most surprising thing to me on this site was that the maps are all so different. It’s amazing how each place translates the same kind of information into a picture and a map key.
If you would like to print out the map, you need to either click on the Acrobat or Word button near the top left corner of the map. In the top right corner, you may see a camera button or a book button.
Camera – This button will show you an image of your chosen location.
Book- This button will give you information about the city you’re viewing.
You will also sometimes see a magnifying glass. That button will zoom in on the map, which will open in another window.
This is a great way to plan your visits to cities around the world. Plus, it’s just pretty darn neat. Enjoy!
