This chart of 220 metro systems from around the world is a total nerdy delight
We could spend far too long working our way through all of these, a chart of 220 metro systems from around the world, in alphabetical order of the country in which they are in.
You’ll probably have got zoom in to get the most satisfaction from them, and you’ll definitely have to zoom in to identify which is which. But can you spot London straight off?

London and Paris are also pretty prominent. I guess it really 'cities that became huge either before cars seemed like the obvious solution, or after cars stopped seeming like the obvious solution'.

It’s not, it has to be said, without inaccuracies …
Manchester does not have an underground metro- Liverpool does.
