Info & Interactivity
- 1. The tubemap.com website uses innovative design to allow users combined interaction with the tube map and google mapping to bring to life the London Underground system.
- 3. Zoom: both the tube map & the google map incorporate high levels of zoom using the arrow icons located near the top of each window.
- 4. Search: tube stations can be located by typing the station name into the search box and clicking the magnifying glass icon. The station will then be centralised in the available window space on both maps. If the station is not immediately obvious, we suggest using a higher level of zoom and if need be clicking the search icon once more.
- 5. Window sizing: the google street map will initially show as partially open. However the left hand frame of this window can be grabbed by clicking and holding the click down whilst dragging the pane either left, to considerably enlargen the google map, or right to allow maximum view of the tube map.
- 6. The google street map incorporates a drop down box, activated by clicking the arrow to the right of 'Map'. The available options are to view the google map as a street map, satellite picture, or as a hybrid which overlays street names on the satellite photography. The satellite photographs are not live pictures and hence are no indication of actual current conditions.
- 7. Interaction between the maps allows users to see London in a new, highly useful and fascinating way; for example click on Wimbledon Park,drag the street map to the left, select satellite' or hybrid and 'walk yourself' to the tennis. Househunters may also wish to explore, from an aerial view, areas located near to a range of different tube stations. Meeting up with friends in St James's Park? - trace your way from the tube station, use a high zoom on the google map and pinpoint an exact spot to get together.
