Nice work[edit]

Nice work creating a map of the Copenhagen Metro system. I've fixed a few typos and adding Lergravsparken station which was missing for some reason. I've also taken the liberty of adding brackets to the station names that remain on the suggestion state, to enable a distinction with those stations whose names are not in doubt, but I consider this a minor issue. Again: thanks a lot for creating this image. Very nice work. Valentinian (talk) 21:54, 17 September 2007 (UTC)

Image:Vancouver SkyTrain Map.svg[edit]

Nice work on the Vancouver SkyTrain map. That's probably among the best (out of all non-official SkyTrain maps) I've seen. Buchanan-Hermit 19:07, 5 November 2007 (UTC)

There are two corrections/updates for the map though: "Burnaby Lake" (not Lake Burnaby)... Main Street's full name is actually "Main Street/Science World" (that's a little thing, but since there are names like "Stadium/Chinatown", it might be good to keep it consistent). :) Buchanan-Hermit 21:01, 5 November 2007 (UTC)
Actually, it's still called Science World... "Science World at TELUS World of Science" is the full name (an unreasonably long name too). The station retains the "Science World" in its name as well, obviously. Buchanan-Hermit 23:51, 5 November 2007 (UTC)


Hi, I just came across the Tramlink map that you created. It looks great, I just have one request for improvement: the tram stop formerly known as IKEA Ampere Way has now reverted to its original name, simply Ampere Way. (For confirmation, see the most recent TfL High frequency services map, although note that they haven't updated the Tramlink system map itself yet). Would it be possible to remove the 'IKEA'? Thanks :) -Paul1337 (talk) 05:59, 23 October 2008 (UTC)

Nice work, but[edit]

...could you kindly rework it a bit? I am refering to Image:Metro map example.svg. Abstracted as it is, the geography isn't quite right. Most such metro maps try to keep the spatial relations between stations recognizable, which yours also does to some degree, but at least Stockholm and Copenhagen should be reversed. There is no way Copenhagen could be imagined as lying between Stockholm an Moscow. I know, it's an idiotic quibble, but still... Kosebamse (talk) 07:13, 3 November 2008 (UTC)

VIVA Bus map change[edit]

Hello David - there is a small change that can be made to the York Region VIVA route map - on the blue line, Jefferson is now an operating stop, so its name should be changed from grey to blue. Thanks in advance! 13:58, 17 January 2009 (UTC)

David, VIVA has opened another Vivastation on the Blue Line at Savage, between Mulock and Orchard Heights. I notified the editor who changed to a different version of the map, but s/he hasn't been active lately. Can you please update Viva York Region route map.svg so that we can have a current system map in Viva (bus rapid transit)? Thanks in advance, 18:29, 18 September 2009 (UTC)
Following up........please adjust the VIVA route map per the note above...........Thanks! PKT 17:09, 15 July 2010 (UTC)


hey are you by any chance on skyscraperpage?


Bonjour. Ton plan du réseau TCL est intéressant. Mais il y a quelques fautes que je me permets de te signaler:

  • Gare de Vénnissieux > Gare de Vénissieux
  • Place Jean Jaurés > Place Jean Jaurès
  • Henon > Hénon
  • Croix-Paquet > Croix-Pâquet
  • Iut Feyssine > IUT Feyssine

Seule la première est vraiment grave. Pour les autres, il s'agit surtout d'une question d'accents et ces fautes sont assez courantes. Voilà, pas de gros changements, mais ce sera plus facile pour toi de faire les modifications parce que tu connais la police utilisée, la taille, etc. Cordialement, Karldupart (talk) 22:44, 23 March 2010 (UTC)

Bonjour. Pas de soucis pour le temps mis à me répondre, je fais moi-même une pause en ce moment. Je signalais les erreurs en passant. Pour Croix-Pâquet, l'erreur est tellement courante qu'elle est en passe de devenir la règle. Donc personnellement, je relevais la faute pour le sport. Mais je connais des puristes que ça énerve beaucoup. Bonne continuation. --Karldupart (talk) 17:40, 18 June 2010 (UTC)


Is there not a typo of 'Maghull' on your map located here? 19:38, 9 July 2013 (UTC)

It would appear so. I'll fix it when I get a chance. DavidArthur (talk) 17:39, 20 July 2013 (UTC)

File:Edinburgh tramway map.svg[edit]

Any chance of updating this map to reflect that the Leith section is likely to be built in future? Something like "not yet built" would be better than "never built". Thanks in advance. --Guinnog (talk) 16:02, 31 March 2014 (UTC)
