Cities & Nature – My first book cover

Detail of Central Park Quilt – North

Today I received the payment from Routledge for the cover of a book titled “Cities & Nature” by my former professor Lisa Benton-Short and John Rennie-Short. It’s scheduled to be published on 11/28/07.

Details (w/o graphic)

Cities and Nature
Author(s) – Lisa Benton-Short, John Rennie-Short
Series: Routledge Critical Introductions to Urbanism and the City

Introducing the reader to the city as part of the environment and so subject to environmental constraints and opportunities, this timely book is based on the claim that to fully understand the city we need to understand both the physical and social elements of the urban environment. Reintroducing a social science perspective to the examination of the city and its physical environment, the book is organized into three sections:

– urban environment in historical perspective
– issues in urban-nature relations
– realigning urban-nature relations.

Illuminated throughout with thematic and place based cases from across the globe, the authors skilfully critique the dominant academic discourse that ignores the environmental base of urban life and living, and considers the urban natural environment as subject to social influences.

You can preorder the book here and here. I get a couple for free :)

Here begins the slew of maps of NYC…

At .60m per pixel, the size of NYC imagery allows for me to download some very large plots of land without creating a massive files. The biggest drawback is that at .60m it only shows about 1/4 the detail of most of the imagery I’ve been using (.30m for DC). This means that its important to preserve the .60m when making my maps, otherwise you won’t be able to see much detail on the ground. After downloading the imagery around Central Park I realized that I needed to break the park up into two sections to preserve the detail. Otherwise I would have created a massively large source tile. Thus I made a north tile and a south tile and honestly, I am glad I did! I think they all turned out perfect!
