London Underground Map

Postby Jimbo90 on Fri Mar 25, 2011 5:56 am

Hi,

Not really been here long, but thought this may be a good idea.

I have done a draft, but will need someone who has experience in map making.

The layout of the london underground map is copyrighted. The name "london underground" is also copyrighted. It's a big tourist business in london... have you ever seen those posters, shopping bags, umbrellas etc. with a map of the london underground printed on? That's why it's copyrighted...

Ah. I see (never saw that stuff though).
Still, we should be able to make a map of the stations and their connections without infringing on that copyright. Shouldn't be very hard to change it appropriately.

Yes the copyright can be easily put out of that map I presume. The idea remains nice ;)
