Why not use an image of Becks original map - there is one at http://britton.disted.camosun.bc.ca/beck_map.jpg but don't know about copyright status for it.
The article says it was based on electrical schematic designs but http://www.vam.ac.uk/vastatic/microsites/1331_modernism/highlights_19.html disputes this saying "Although often assumed to be based on electrical circuit diagrams, his ‘geoschematic’ map was apparently modelled on sewer mapping." — Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 08:18, 28 August 2013 (UTC)
Transport for London do not claim copyright for the tube map in any place where it is published (either as wall posters or 'give away' pocket maps.) This makes sense because London Transport used the map for years even though they had no claim to the copyright (If the copyright belonged to anyone, it was to Harry Beck as he did not conceive it in London Transport's time).
