Mount Vernon Quilt #3

Mount Vernon Quilt #3

Using this portion of Mount Vernon Quilt #2, I created a derivative tessellation to create this fractal map. Up next I have another map of Mount Vernon based off of a third dervative tessellation created from this map. The aim is to isolate the area around Baltimore’s Washington Monument.

Unlike previous fractal maps, I have made a slight correction to the source imagery. Earlier this year I discovered how my quilt projection template slightly over-projects the imagery. To combat this, I tried something new with this map. Prior to tessellation, I reduced the source imagery about 10 pixels (or about .003%). I am not sure how much it helped, since I am not exactly sure how much I have over-projected the imagery, but I think I’ll do this from now on.

Jacksonville Quilt

In an effort to cover more areas that have available imagery that I haven’t mapped yet, I decided to make a couple maps of Jacksonville, Florida. Prior to downloading the Jacksonville imagery I made an attempt to get some imagery of Connecticut because I have yet to map the Constitution State. However, there was only black & white imagery and false color imagery, both of which I don’t like to use.

When preparing to download the Jacksonville imagery I had the choice to download .3 meter imagery from 2004 and 1 foot imagery from 2005. Both equal roughly the same spatial resolution (.3 meters = about 1 foot), but what I discovered after viewing the imagery was that Google is currently using the 2004 imagery. Thus I chose to use the 2005 imagery so that I can add another city where I beat Google to the map.

After years of waiting I finally have color aerial photography of Wisconsin available to use. Green Bay is still not available to download and Milwaulkee’s imagery is a bit colorless (but not black & white), so I doubt I’ll be making anymore from this state for a little bit. Regardless, I am happy to have made a map for the state of Wisconsin.

University of Southern California Quilt by Nikolas Schiller

These two maps of the University of Southern California will be the last of Los Angeles for a bit. I am surprised by the amount of maps I have made of this sprawling city! Moreover, I see myself remapping much of the city in the not-so-distant future. There is a lot of places here left to discover. As for USC, I think it’s quite interesting how condensed the University Park Campus is. I thought GWU’s urban location was slighly cramped, but this university was able to fit a lot into a small area.

Like the “Icositetragon of Northwestern Station in Chicago,” I am not including another company’s name for the title of this map. It’s the worst polluter in the world…
