The Spokes map is much superior as it shows real distances and also how the various tracks can be joined. I like it and think its good! Its clean and easy to understand, shows the links there are, and equally importantly shows the gaps in the off road network. It would be good to link it to the Edinburgh Core Paths Plan. I did the mapping for this a few years ago but its all in pdf and paper form and never made it online.
Some representation on the ground would also be good. Obviously this is where you run into issues of cost, vandalism and landowner negotiations. First time I picked up one of the wee printed innertube maps I thought that the idea was to show how big the gaps between the bits of traffic free infrastructure are and to point out generally how limited the network in the city is.
The online version of the Innertube map launched today.
There are the usual teething problems, innertube the end result is pretty sweet. Anyone can post comments to the blog, including photos, videos and audio.

edinbburgh The idea is to create a comprehensive online resource for cycling and other community related issues edinburgy ideas in Edinburgh. Check it out — Innertube Map. I think it will be really interesting to see how the online map and blog develop over the next few months. One of the key aims of the project is to get people to engage with the issues that go hand in hand with cycling in a city, and hopefully to encourage people onto their bikes.
The Spokes map is excellent, and being a true map, rather than a conceptual map, is a more accurate guide. As someone who enjoys reading maps, I find that really frustrating to read. However, as dair mentions, it is probably much better as a way of distributing news and issues about particular areas of the network which you happen to use, although I have a feeling that if it becomes popular that it could get overwhelmed with rubbish or out-of-date posts.
As a lawyer, I am hardwired to be cynical, so I struggle to dismiss the above negative comments out of hand, because I have had them all myself at one point or another! As a cycling charity, their objectives face in several different directions. The core paths plan was a requirement of the Land reform Act. There are implications to do with planning and council development plans however which is a good thing. If you look at the local authorities with extensive rural areas such as Fife and highland, you can knnertube the massive amount of time and effort that has been required by core paths plans — in Edinburgh we were relatively lucky in that we had a comparatively small area and path network to assess.
Which is quite annoying. It gives you alternative routes choices so you can pick a faster or innertubd journey, and detailed mapping with a turn-by-turn route description. The inner tube map is interesting as an overview, and does highlight the disconnected void at the centre of the Edinburgh path network.

The London tube map works because the stations are clearly sign posted, and once you have entered the system, your journey is effectively abstracted from the actual twists and turns of the rail lines; all you have to do is change at the right places, and eventually you will pop out at your destination. To use the cycle paths, you actually have to navigate your way around the network, and the various entry points, junctions and transitions are not always obvious.
This seems to be acknowledged in the map ddinburgh, which references the Spokes maps for further details. I guess it does work as a bit of a talking point and a consciousness raiser for people that may not currently be cycling, which is good.
So I guess the Innertube map will only edinbuegh work as a true map if there is good signage on each route, clearly marking each stop in correlation with the map?
A lot of people look at normal maps and are bewildered lines and lines and lines! One of the ambitions of the project is to improve signage on the off-road paths in the north of the city.
