  • Lincolnshire and Durham invest in FWT’s latest generation Cartogold platform
    direct from TransXChange data they already hold for the Traveline North East journey planner FWT has developed back office software that can produce clear coherent PDF timetables from the data for download by the public as well as clear route maps and stop locations on a stylized Ordnance Survey background By clicking on any stop in County Durham details of almost 300 bus routes and times can be accessed immediately together with PDF network and town maps disruptions to services and forthcoming timetable changes Already usage of the site which is built using HTML5 has grown remarkably with daily highs of 800 unique visitors and 45 000 individual page views Further development to allow real time departure bus stop departure information to be shown is also planned The latest Cartogold versions are also far easier to navigate for users of smartphones and tablets Following on from a demonstration of the Durham site at the Smarter Travel show in Birmingham in February Lincolnshire County Council has also now commissioned FWT to upgrade its existing Cartogold powered lincsbus info site to the same standards as Durham again using their existing data The Lincolnshire site will also feature direct access to real time

  • We don’t usually do this sort of thing but felt we had to mark the sad passing of Andrew Dow aged just 71.
    US We don t usually do this sort of thing but felt we had to mark the sad passing of Andrew Dow aged just 71 Andrew was the son of George Dow who pioneered diagrammatic railway network maps at least four years before Henry Beck s map for the Underground in 1933 There is much evidence that Beck was not the originator but inspired and influenced by George Dow s maps for the LNER from 1929 though the publicity machines now incorrectly elevate Beck and yes his names was Henry and not Harry Andrew was fiercely proud of his father s ground breaking work and rightly so Andrew wrote the magnificent Telling the Passenger Where to Get Off telling of George s work and published in 2005 He wrote many other authoritative articles and books on related subjects and was a railwayman through and through as well as being a much respected historian He was head of the National Railway Museum in York from 1992 to 1994 We are proud to count him among the friends of FWT and will miss him greatly NEWS SIGN UP FOR OUR E NEWS First Name Last Name Position Company Email Telephone OUR PRINCIPLES

  • All men may be created equal but First Capital Connect understood that not all network diagrams are.
    has sadly caused many people to think that these diagrams are easy to design After all they are only a load of straight lines Wrong New designs by FWT Dissatisfied with their long standing network map First Capital Connect approached FWT to ask if we could do something better The existing design appeared to obey all the supposed rules but somehow looked clumsy and the station names were hard to read The problem was the lack of balance between the thickness of the lines and the size of the station names This was compounded by an inappropriate typeface being used that was too heavy and too wide This meant that the size of the station names was too small The importance of using appropriate typefaces for different purposes is commonly not understood not just for maps and diagrams Bold type at small sizes is a bad combination for legibility We re designed the geometry from first principles ensuring a better visual flow of the names along the lines We also changed the typeface to something with more relevant stroke widths and character shapes that suited use at small sizes Specifically designed to fit their pocket timetables the new diagram appears
