I'm doing a Geomatics project for my Grade 12 Geomatics class and my task is to find 8 maps on a subject. We chose transportation as our topic so I was curious if anyone have or have access to any types of maps related to transportation either directly or indirectly. These are the types we need:
Chloropleth, Isoline, Dot, Flow, Proportional Symbol, Divided Symbol, Cartogram (Value By Area), and one unique one (Anything else.)

Any help at all would be greatly appreciated, I will continue to search here (Just found this excellent board) and around the web.

Thanks Alot,

Steve

What about the New York subway map? http://www.mta.info/...maps/submap.htm That might fall in the Flow or other category...although flow might be a stretch.

There might be some examples at regional transportation or development agencies. I immediately thought of SANDAG (San Diego Association of Governments.

I'm not sure what kind of map it is, but to see real-time freeway speeds in southern california: SigAlert

or Southern California Inland Empire Real-Time Traffic Map

Best to check Friday afternoon around 4-7pm PDT, or in the mornings 7-9am. Comparing a morning and evening commute would be interesting.

The famous London Underground map would be a great example for your cartogram:

edited to add: nevermind, I see you need a value by area cartogram, this is a linear cartogram.

These are excellent however I need simpler, printable maps :( The topic can by ANYTHING directly or indirectly related to transportation. So, trade, or marine for example. Hopefully I can get some soon! I still need Dot, Proportional symbol, divided symbol, cartogram (Value by area)

Here's one for you, Steve. But you'll have to print it.

And remember, there's only one 'l' in choropleth!

Martin, yours is a proportional symbol map. I think copperfront was looking for a dot-density map, which are not that common in transportation subjects. But here's one I had handy.
