Problem: No sane MRT map that's in a small SVG file

Goal: Create a small open Web-friendly SVG for navigating MRT trains

Singapore MRT and LRT System Map

Plan of action

  1. Found LTA SVG of map too bloated and text poorly marked up. Wikipedia user Aforl has a much better SMRT map.
  2. Run svgo over it.
  3. Publish it at http://mrt.dabase.com/ with an Appcache so it's fast on mobiles and can be used offline. Also add meta junk so mobile Web apps feel like native ones.

CHALLENGE: Make the SVG smaller!

I will acknowledge anyone who manages to shave more than 10% off the size of the map.svg without significantly deteriorating the rendering.
