Railway Museum Site Maps

I have been researching and drawing site maps of railway museums, all to the same scale for comparison purposes. All twenty-three maps completed to date are now posted on my Fliker site at:

I have continued working on maps of railway musuems and am up to 33 maps showing 37 organizations, all to the same scale. The latest versions are all in one PDF file, one to a page. Comments and corrections are welcome. Copying for non-commercial reasons is also welcome.

These maps are better detailed and more up to date than the ones that the organizations provide. FRTM looks correct. Hopefully there will be some small changes soon for you to update. Do these have anything to do with GIS?

You might want to think about entering them into OpenStreetMap, like I've done for the RGVM: http://www.openstreetmap.org/?lat=43.01 ... 5&layers=M
