So new year, new map. It’s been amazing to see the support and interest in what has been to date to create a London cycle network map. I’m very thankful for it and just makes it easier to keep pushing on with it. As a result, for 2017 we decided to take some time out to evolve the map, hopefully for the better.
We have looked to make some tweaks to the map. Overall it offers the same overall London view of cycle routes, but it in addition it now looks to:
- simplify the routes shown to being either fully signposted or those with few turns to make, so as to make it all easier to follow
- display as a single sheet making it easier to view, print, and read
- display with the geographic central routings removed thereby improving the user experience when maps are zoomed. (we hope to provide more detailed, more zoomed, and more localised maps in the near future)
- make the map simpler to view, with journey time contours removed and link routes straightened. These changes make the map both easier on the eye and easier to read and understand
The hope is that going forward, with high quality wayfinding on the key routes shown on the map, that you can get around on a bike in London with minimal GIS assistance. Whether this will happen in reality only time will tell, and any feedback on this would be much appreciated.
I hope this goes as well as the previous versions. Thanks again for all the interest and support.
