GIGA mapping – I

All the information we had was quite scattered – it was a collection of observations and some insights.

When we started the first decision came easy – deciding the format of the map – a linear time based map – as both waiting and bus systems are well represented.
However then making the giga map was not at all a simple task. Here is the first rough draft of the same –
