Screen grab from the 90.3 KWMU

A little over a week ago I noticed that Teresa Mendez article from the Christian Science Monitor had been syndicated in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution and ABC News.

Today I found that the article was syndicated again on December 30th, 2007 on quite a few NPR affiliates, including the one I used to listen to when I was young (KWMU 90.3) and, curiously, even in Taiwan.

An Interchange in Omaha
|| 8/23/2006 || 3:03 pm || Comments Off on An Interchange in Omaha || ||

: rendered at 18,000 X 12,000 :

Well not just some random interchange, it’s the confluence of Highway 75 and Interstate 480 – aka the Gerald Ford Freeway. There are two main comments about this map. One is about design and the other is about the subject. To start, the design is slightly flawed! Well it looks perfect from a 1:15 scale, but it’s one pixel off! When I was tessellating the photograph, I accidentally left one extra pixel on the seams of the tile. So when you zoom into the map, you see this small white line on the seams. It looks cool, but it’s not perfectly seamless like the rest. As for the subject, I didn’t know it when I was making the tile, but Gerald Ford has been in the hospital recently and the interstate that makes up half of this map is named after him.

View the Google Map of the interchange of Highway 75 & the Gerald Ford Freeway (I-480).
