  • MBTA Transit Service Quality Map Now Responsive

    boston, mbta, transit  [html]
    I updated my transit quality map to be responsive.

    (I was surprised by how much you have to do to get google maps to overlay a simple image. Far too much work. You can also see from the map looking at places like central square that the transit data is slightly misaligned with the water cutouts. And the water cutouts are more visibly misaligned with the live google map. But the corrections are small enough that you can mostly do them in your head.)
