You can see the full-size version of the map here. See the post about it here.

The caption reads: "This playful diagram shows all the cities which have, are building or are planning to construct an urban rail system. It is the opening page of a new book about the graphic design of subway, metro, underground and U-Bahn system maps and diagrams."
