Cityofsound: Map of Europe in which real distances seem shorter thanks to the high-speed train

Could you briefly describe the difference between each map? I don’t quite understand what the differences are… Thanks Dan!

Cityofsound: Map of Europe in which real distances seem shorter thanks to the high-speed train

I think that makes sense… I wasn’t really sure why there were three maps - I would only expect two: One geographically correct, normal, map and another using the actual speeds of trains.

For ages I’ve wanted to create a map like this with costs of airfares, especially seeing how/if budget airlines change the apparent distances. But I’ve got no idea how to go about drawing such a map.
