I'm well beyond the point of diminishing returns on my HSR mapping, so here's the last set of images I plan to make for a while.
I've moved my maps to GMaps for any future work. Unfortunately, there seems to be a limit to the number of points that the interface will display at one time, so I had to split the lines into several maps:
- Tier 1 lines (220 mph)
- Tier 2 lines (186 mph)
- Tier 3 lines (110 mph)
- Tier 4 lines (79 mph)
- Long-distance routes (79 mph)
A big advantage in using GMaps is that it covers the globe. This allowed me to plan out an integrated North American passenger rail system. Obviously anything resembling my proposal won't be built for 40 or 50 years. But it's there nonetheless.
