I made a couple different tessellations of the area around the Lincoln Memorial. This map features the same imagery used for this map, but it’s tessellated differently to create a new design.

I decided to start mapping the area that Google has censored. I discovered that the Lincoln Memorial lies on the line of censorship [link to Google Map zoom-in]. The line starts right at the stairs of the Lincoln Memorial, which means that the reflection pool imagery in my map is newer than Google’s imagery. The Vietnam Memorial is also newer in my map but is censored by Google.

This is one of my first maps which has it’s source imagery made beyond the scope of a normal tessellation. Back in December I was preparing the source imagery for Lincoln Memorial Quilt, I decided to try something completely new in photoshop. I used the 45 degree rotated imagery of the Lincoln Memorial as a frame around circular cutout of the first derivative of the Superdome Quilt. I liked this tile (I think I am going to use the word tile from now on) so much that I actually saved the tile as something I was going to print out as is, but now I have a derivative tiling that I will definitely print out.

While I like the first Dupont Circle Quilt slightly better, I still find this one to be one of my finest. The beauty of this map lies in the preparation of the source imagery. When I set up the mosaic I rotated the Lincoln Memorial imagery 45 degrees and tessellated it so the relfection pool makes a perfect X at the center. However, when I set this scene up, I rotated the entire quilt another 45 degrees, which gives the appearance of an exquisite checkerboard. This process of rotating the source imagery and further rotating the scene is something I’d like to do more of. I look forward to printing this one out :)
I didn’t realize it at the time, but Vietnam Memorial also shows up prominently in details.

This is the first rendering I’ve made using the Lincoln Memorial as the subject. When creating the source imagery I took a different approach to setting up the geographic tessellation. I first rotated imagery 45 degrees and from that I cut out the Lincoln Memorial. I paid careful attention so that the refelection pool created a central X in the imagery. While the 6 seamed quilt template is not new, this method of source imagery creation is, and I am very happy with the result and will probably employ this method again in the future.

Thank Spacing Imaging for providing me with that image. Its the same image that I used in the “site map” and on the newly formed intro page. This time I used the fact that the source image had limited resolution (1280 x 1024 pixels) and I multiplied it a total of 36 times to achieve a larger mendala. The lenz was the same size as DC Lenz #2, as well as the same backround layout. This is one of my favorites, but the pixels are owned by someone else. :-(

Last week at the ESRI Federal GIS Users Conference I picked up a MASSIVE print of Las Vegas, Nevada and this week some of my friends began discussing the possibility of going to Las Vegas this spring. The Digital Globe print has all of the mega resorts and even a perfect zenith over the Luxor. I, however, do not have any plans to go there. Its a place I want to go to when I have a lot of money to blow.

So it turns out that the guy who gave me the dinars was actually an ROTC Guy who is studying law in DC. He is currently “undeployable.” I think once he graduates he’ll be off to the front lines. God speed soldier. Bring me back more worthless money that shows the price of liberation.
