Metro Map

This solution extends ConceptDraw PRO v9.5 or later software with the ability to create metro maps, route maps, bus, transit maps and other transport schemes, or even tube-style infographics.

Metro Map is a one-click tool to add stations to the map. It lets you control the direction in which you create new stations, change lengths, and add text labels and icons. It contains Lines, Stations, and Landmarks objects.

The solution uses two ConceptDraw techniques: Replicating Objects and Switching Objects. The result is a vector graphic document.


There is 1 stencils library containing 37 vector shapes in the Metro Map solution.

Examples

The samples you see on this page were created in ConceptDraw PRO using the Metro Map solution, and demonstrate the solution's capabilities and the results you can achieve using this solution.

All source documents are vector graphic documents. They are available for reviewing, modifying or converting to a variety of formats (PDF file, MS PowerPoint, MS Visio, and many other graphic formats) from the ConceptDraw Solution Park, for all users who have installed Metro Map solutions.

Example 1: Metro Map — London Tube

This diagram was created in ConceptDraw PRO using the Transport Map Library from the Metro Map Solution. An experienced user spent 40 minutes creating this sample.

This sample shows the London Tube opened in 1863. Explore the oldest public metro system in the world with this subway map created with ConceptDraw PRO. Each subway line has its own color and line width on the subway map to maximize visibility.

Example 2: Metro Map — Los Angeles Metro Rail and Liner

This diagram was created in ConceptDraw PRO using the Transport Map Library from the Metro Map Solution. An experienced user spent 20 minutes creating this sample.

This sample shows a map of the Los Angeles Metro Rail, a rapid-transit rail system consisting of six separate lines serving 80 stations. A legend is a useful way to explain the notation to any viewers of the subway map.

Example 4: Metro Map — ARL Route Map

This diagram was created in ConceptDraw PRO using the Transport Map Library from the Metro Map Solution. An experienced user spent 5 minutes creating this sample.

This sample shows an ARL route map. Designing maps in ConceptDraw PRO, you can easily apply different styles to the routes for a different appearance, if necessary. Various vector objects can be used to signify additional information; for example, you can show location of parts of the world relative to your route and metro maps of local transit systems.

Example 5: Subway Map — Tokyo Tube Map

This diagram was created in ConceptDraw PRO using the Transport Map Library from the Metro Map Solution. An experienced user spent 35 minutes creating this sample.

This sample illustrates the most extensive mass transit system in the world – Tokyo Tube Map. Look at this subway map – it has an extremely complex structure. Use the predesigned vector objects from the ConceptDrawPRO libraries to design similarly complex routes and metro maps, metro path maps, subway train maps, and metro train maps in mere minutes.

Example 6: MTA Subway Map — New York City Subway

This diagram was created in ConceptDraw PRO using the Transport Map Library from the Metro Map Solution. An experienced user spent 40 minutes creating this sample.

This sample shows the MTA Subway Map in New York City. The Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) is a largest public benefit corporation which is responsible for public transportation in12 counties in southeastern New York and 2 counties in southwestern Connecticut.
