Image copyright problem with Image:TubeMapZ1 TFL.png[edit]

The image Image:TubeMapZ1 TFL.png is used in this article under a claim of fair use, but it does not have an adequate explanation for why it meets the requirements for such images when used here. In particular, for each page the image is used on, it must have an explanation linking to that page which explains why it needs to be used on that page. Please check

  • That there is a non-free use rationale on the image's description page for the use in this article.
  • That this article is linked to from the image description page.

It would make much more sense to use one of the many diagrams actually drawn by Beck rather than an extract of the modern one surely?--Mapmark (talk) 10:19, 30 June 2009 (UTC)

Why not use an image of Becks original map - there is one at but don't know about copyright status for it.

The article says it was based on electrical schematic designs but 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 (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).
