3D Tube Times
3D mapping library eeGeo uses WebGL to provide stunning 3D interactive maps. The eegeo.js API is based on Leaflet.js so it is very easy to use for anyone familiar with any of the most popular mapping platforms.
If you want to get started using eeGeo then you will want to check out the eeGeo API documentation. You might also want to have a look at this tutorial on Building Gorgeous 3D Maps with eeGeo.js. The tutorial provides a step by step guide to creating a 3D map. It also shows you how to add polylines to show the London Underground network on the map. Finally it uses the Transport for London API to add live underground train times to the London Underground stations on the map.
The completed map allows you to hover over any London Underground station to view live train times. It also shows all the London Underground network lines using colored polylines (using the TfL color scheme).
