Boston Volcano

: rendered at 15,000 X 10,000 :

This is my first rendering of “colorful” Boston. I obtained the “colorful” imagery from MassGIS and I really like the way the rendering turned out. I use the word “colorful” to denote how MassGIS has put together a bunch of different imagery, taken at different a bunch of different times, and made a patchwork mosaic out of it. The different colors represent a series of factors like what time of day the photograph was taken, the angle at which the overhead device took the picture, and even season in which the photograph was taken. Regardless, this patchwork approach looks great!

I used the same template as the Mall Mountain but I changed the angle to about 40 degrees to give an interesting sense of depth to the rendering. Yet, this graphic doesn’t look much like a volcano, more like a Greatful Dead tye-dye shirt! But I think I’ll be able to replicate this again using different imagery to make some interesting prints :-)

When I was riding my bike home from work today I came up with the idea of delving into some other geographic mediums. Instead of aerial & satellite imagery, why not use a topographic map? I bet the contour lines will make the rendering all more intricate! I don’t have anything in the render pipeline at the moment, but I’m going to snag an actual map tomorrow to see what I can come up with.
