Tube Map Central is Changing!

Tube Map Central has always been my private web page in which I have discussed my work on schematic maps. The host for these web pages used to be the University of Essex privatewww, so if you typed in my domain name, you would end up here. If you can still see this page, chances were that you were either led here by google, or a direct link which contained the following address:

This Essex hosted web page is now obsolete, and all links below will take you to rehosted web pages at so make sure you click through to there before bookmarking anything.

The pages will no longer be updated, and will fade into obsolescence. If you have linked to privatewww pages, please update your links.
