The Shanghai Daily have a Flash metro map, located at http://live.shanghaidaily.com/station/swf/metro.html.
Looking at it, certain visual elements seem a little familiar.
For example, let’s take a look at our Explore Shanghai legend. A semi-transparent white rectangle, with blocks for the lines, and a key for the “station”/”interchange station”.
Now, let’s take a look at the Shanghai Daily’s legend. Hmm. Also semi-transparent white rectangle, same layout, same labels, same symbols.
When you click on a station circle on ExploreShanghai, the other lines fade out to highlight which lines travel through that station.
On Shanghai Daily’s map, the exact same behaviour:

Now, I generally have respect for the Shanghai Daily, and I’m very happy for the competition: but if you’re going to rip off someone else’s work, at least be honest about it.
