Request for maps

Daniel Neville made this Freedom of Information request to Transport for London

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was successful.

Dear Transport for London,

I hope you are well.

It has come to my attention that many maps on tfl.gov.uk are out of date. An example is the Tube and Rail Map which lists a version from 2017/05, whereas the latest in stations are 2017/12 and presumably now 2018/01.

Please can you provide me with a copy of any and all transportation-related maps you have internally, in their latest form, please do not modify them prior to release unless necessary.

This request is clearly quite broad in scope, so I wish to help you reduce it.

To reduce the size of this request, please:
* Provide digital copies (including scans) only as appropriate, there is no need to post any material or provide audio/accessible versions. PDF is the most appropriate format, but PNG/JPG and similar imaging formats are also acceptable.
* Provide only the latest version of maps, but do include any "maps of the future"

Unless the effort to you is negligible, please do NOT include the following unless they are listed in the specific include list below (this should substantially reduce the size of the request.)
* Road maps (unless they form part of a wider services map)
* Bus/tram maps (unless they form part of a wider services map)
* Maps that show areas substantially outside the London Zone (you can treat the London Zone as the area where Oyster cards can be used) and do not show the London zone.
* Santander cycle maps (unless they form part of a wider services map)
* River maps (unless they form part of a wider services map)
* Congestion charging maps
* Low emission zone maps
* Car club maps
* Oyster shop maps and associated maps.
* Dedicated visitor and tourist maps

A wider services map here should refer to a multiple services map that shows two or more services on a single map. Bus and tram can be considered a single service for the purpose of this question.

If it is easier to include any excluded map above than remove it, please include it in the set.

Whilst I believe this request should be achievable in full, please specifically include the Latest Form of the following maps (the online tfl.gov.uk resources appear to be out of date.)

* Tube Map
* Tube and Rail Map
* London connections map (aka, Geographically accurate representation of London Tube and rail lines: https://tfl.gov.uk/corporate/publication...)
* Any large scale overview bus maps that show a 'whole London' perspective.
* Inter Infraco Track Boundaries and similar maps (as per https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/1...)
* Railway (including Underground, etc) maps, including line planning maps.

The above list is not exhaustive, any other map would be appreciated. The latest update is particularly important.

Should you believe you do not have time to provide copies of all maps (for example, paper copies require scanning), please provide a list of all maps available that are not provided and we can work to narrow the request suitably.

I look forward

Yours faithfully,

Daniel Neville

Dear Mr Neville

 

Our Ref:         FOI-2851-1718

 

Thank you for your request received on 9 January 2018 asking for a copy of
any updated maps.

 

Your request has been considered in accordance with the requirements of
the Freedom of Information Act and our information access policy. I can
confirm we hold some of the information you require. You asked for:

 

* Tube Map

* Tube and Rail Map

 

The Tube and Tube & Rail maps on our website are the current ones:

 

[1]https://tfl.gov.uk/maps/track?intcmp=40400

 

In accordance with section 21 of the FOI Act, TfL is not obliged to supply
you with a copy of the requested information as it is already accessible
to you elsewhere.

 

* London connections map (aka, Geographically accurate representation of
London Tube and rail lines:
[2]https://tfl.gov.uk/corporate/publication...)

 

We have not updated the London Connections Map since it was published
online, therefore the one at the above link is the most up to date
version.

 

* Any large scale overview bus maps that show a 'whole London'
perspective.

 

We do not hold a large scale network map, instead various digital products
that map out London and its various bus routes are used. The most up to
date maps are available on our website:

 

[3]https://tfl.gov.uk/maps/bus?intcmp=40401

 

* Inter Infraco Track Boundaries and similar maps (as per
[4]https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/1...)

 

Please find attached the current Inter Infraco Track Boundaries map.

 

* Railway (including Underground, etc) maps, including line planning maps.

 

Unfortunately, from the description provided, we are unable to identify
the information you require. To enable us to assist with your request,
please provide a more detailed description of the information you are
seeking together with any other details you think might help us locate the
information you require.

 

If this is not the information you are looking for, or if you are unable
to access it for some reason, please feel free to contact me.

 

Please see the attached information sheet for details of your right to
appeal as well as information on copyright and what to do if you would
like to re-use any of the information we have disclosed.

 

Yours sincerely
