Using the tessellation from Clayton Quilt #3, I made a Hexagon projection version. There is a nice hexagram in the center.

This map was manually constructed and is different than most quilts. Specifically, it does not exhibit radial geometry. I find this map pleasing to the eye simply because I’ve used radial for so long that this map marks a true deviation, like the Shanghai Map. The next map will be very similar, using the exact same imagery, but will be projected radially.

Clayton Quilt

Clayton, Missouri is one of the few satellite cities within Saint Louis County that has dense enough development to have a downtown with high-rise office & residential buildings. When I was younger I remember enjoying downtown Clayton. It was probably the first urban environment I ever explored. In Shaw Park (which is not in the map above), I learned how to ice skate in the mid-1980s and in 1998 I had my first ever DJ gig (what a night!). The source aerial photography was one foot per pixel and taken between April 1st & 10th, 2006. In the map above, I reduced the spatial scale by 25% (which gives about 1.5 feet per pixel) so the Forest Park Expressway would show more. From the meta-data I discovered that Sanborn has an office in Chesterfield (near my hometown) which I’d like to visit sometime in the future.
