15 Subway Maps Compared to Their Actual Geography

 

The subreddit r/DataIsBeautiful is one of the most popular communities on reddit and its members have become well-known for creating original and engaging content that helps us all make better sense of the world.

A recent post by vinnivinnivinni that recently went viral showed an animated comparison of the Berlin subway map vs its actual geography.

The post inspired a lot of other community members to create equivalent maps for cities around the world and now most of the major subway systems have gotten the same animated treatment.
