The London Underground map is a design classic, but designer Andrew Godwin has put an interesting twist on the Tube. Having seen these two projects, it’s hard to believe nobody thought of doing this before.

His Twin Tubes map shows the London Underground laid out with two lines; one for each direction. He’s also marked platforms on both sides.

Even more fun: 3D Tube station maps. Select a station and drag the 3D drawing around to show all the levels and platforms within it. Even more amazing: he built most of these 3D maps from memory. This is, believe it or not, a small 3D cross-section of Kings Cross St Pancras.

Read more about Andrew’s work via his blog: this post talks about Twin Tubes, and this post describes the code (and process) behind creating a 3D Tube map.
