My New York Map Society Presentation at the New York Public Library
|| 10/4/2008 || 7:03 pm || Comments Off on My New York Map Society Presentation at the New York Public Library || ||

Below are the “slides” used in my presentation for the New York Map Society. Culled from the last four years of entries on this website, the selected maps show the range of my cartographic endeavors. What is missing, however, is my explanation of why I chose each slide.

The presentation was was supposed to go for about 45 minutes and have about 15 minutes of Q&A, instead it went for about 75 minutes and had about 15 minutes of Q&A. In all, I felt it was a very successful presentation and I deeply grateful for the New York Map Society for inviting me and the wonderful staff at the New York Public Library for their assistance.

The Lenz Project(ion)

The Lenz Projection is based on 4 simple items:
– Aerial or satellite image
– Torus (a donut)
– Transparent glass sphere
– Light source

The Lenz Projection was setup as follows:
– A light source is created to illuminate the scene
– The aerial or satellite image was placed in the direct center of the scene (the square peg)
– The Torus placed at the center of the scene and reduced so that the image fits exactly in the center (the square peg in a round hole)
– The transparent glass sphere was place at the center of the scene enclosing the image and half the diameter of the torus (Lenz)

By adjusting the the Z dimension (depth) of the transparent glass sphere over the square image in the circle, the Lenz causes the imagery to refract and fill the space of the circle.
