Map of New York CIty Subway as digital reconstruction 2015 by Reka Komoli of original hand-drawn map by R Raleigh DAdamo 1964 which was a winning entry in the NYCTA Subway Map Competition 1964[edit]

Description: In 1964, the New York City Transit Authority (NYCTA) ran a public Subway Map Competition to design a new subway map that would be valid after the opening of the Chrystie Street Connection. R.Raleigh D'Adamo submitted a hand-drawn map that was one of the winners. This map and the accompanying report formed the basis for the use of route colour coding in official New York City subway maps from November 1967 onwards. The original map was destroyed by the NYCTA in the 1980s, but a low-grade colour photograph of the original map was found by D'Adamo in October 2014. Using that photograph as a basis, a reconstruction of the map in vector graphics was made by Reka Komoli during 2014/15 in consultation with Raleigh D'Adamo and historian Peter B. Lloyd. The image here is a low-resolution copy of that copyrighted map. The original design is copyright by R. Raleigh D'Adamo (1964) and the reconstruction by Reka Komoli (1964). The file is uploaded here to illustrate the article 'New York City Subway Map'.

Article To Be Used On/Reason For Upload: Article: 'New York City Subway Map'. This image serves to illustrate the historically influential prototype subway map that was drawn by R. Raleigh D'Adamo in 1964. The original hand-drawn map was destroyed in the 1980s. The only extant image of it is a low-grade contemporary photograph, which is too poor to allow design details to be easily discerned. The image that is uploaded here is the only clear representation of the original design that exists. This digital reconstruction is the result of several months' work by Reka Komoli and is copyright by her. A low-resolution copy of her map is uploaded here in order to supplement the article 'New York City Subway Map'. The upload has the permission and full support of Reka Komoli and R. Raleigh D'Adamo.

Rationale for use: 1. No free equivalent exists, or is likely ever to exist. 2. This non-free content is not used in a manner that is likely to replace the original market role of the original copyrighted material. 3. A single, low-resolution copy of the image is sufficient. 4. Previous publication: 5. Content is 'encyclopaedic'. 6. Meets Wikipedia's Image Use Policy. 7. When it has been uploaded, it will be used in the article 'New York City Subway Map' 8. It is very hard to grasp D'Adamo's design solution for the subway map without actually seeing it. D'Adamo's map created the precedent for route color-coding of the subway map from 1967 onwards. 9. It is to be used only in an article. 10. For description, see 'Description' above. Also see above for Fair Use tag.

Symbol opinion vote.svg Comment: I need clarification about exactly what image you want uploaded. I assume you want me to screen capture the image on page 2 of the .pdf file. If that's the case, do you want the entire two images uploaded (both the larger background image and the foreground image on top of it)? Or do you just want the foreground image uploaded? --Nick⁠—⁠Contact/Contribs 16:46, 24 August 2015 (UTC)
