I decided to map out the area around the metro stop north of where I live in Washington, DC.

Rosslyn Quilt #2

: rendered at 18,000 X 12,000 :

I zoomed out slightly to capture more of the quilt. The result is a map with less spatial resolution (ie, unlike the first it doesn’t maintain the 1 meter per pixel ratio) but more surrounding quilt.

Rosslyn Quilt
|| 4/24/2006 || 8:10 am || Comments Off on Rosslyn Quilt || ||

: rendered at 18,000 X 12,000 :

Just across the Potomac River from Georgetown lies Rosslyn, Virginia. It’s buildings are taller than those in DC and much of it’s growth as a satellite city went unchecked in 1960’s. The result is a mish-mash of high-rise buildings without much of a coherent layout. You’d have to pay me to live here, but then again, it would be nice to have congressional representation.

What I like best about this map is the way the Iwo Jima Memorial is reflected around the center.

I might made another that creates a hexagon or an octogon out of the Pentagon. I think it would look really cool :-)

Pentagon Quilt by Nikolas Schiller

I’ve decided to venture over the Potomac River and make a few maps of the Washington, DC hinterland. Up next will be Rosslyn and the CIA building.

I don’t know why I decided to make maps of the Pentagon & CIA, but I figured why not just focus on a couple buildings? Most of my maps are comprised of specific areas instead of specific buildings, so in some respects, while they are not technically different, these two maps are a slight departure from the norm.

Raleigh Quilt by Nikolas Schiller

So I made two Raleigh maps, but I totally screwed up on the second. Instead of intersecting two different planes, I only had one plane. I can’t believe I rendered such an incomplete map, but alas I did. I’ve opted to not post the second one because of it’s inherent error. Maybe I’ll get around to making another….but not anytime soon.
