Project Description:
As a proof of concept, Tom Carden plotted the London Underground Map with respect to the time to travel between stations (excluding waiting times and interchange times) in a quite engaging interactive application.

Built with Processing, this interactive Tube Map allows the user to click on (or select from a drop-down list) a station to see the London Underground map reorganize around the times of travel from that station. Shortest paths are used to place the other stations - radius is proportional to time to travel, and angle should be correct for as-the-crow-flies direction on a map. The concentric circles are at 10 minute intervals.

The interactive map was Inspired by Oskar Karlin's reworking of the tube map around the time to travel from Elephant and Castle, and Rod McLaren's subsequent sketch 10 Minutes tube travel from Oxford Circus. Uses travel times from Geoff and Neil's travel times map. Station locations are from Wikipedia's London Underground Geographic Maps.
