Park La Brea Quilt #2

Park La Brea’s geometric design allows for some excellent manipulations. For the first time in a VERY long time I’ve decided to create not one, but two fractals of a specific location. Number 3 will be up shortly…

Park La Brea Quilt by Nikolas Schiller

Park La Brea (Spanish: La Brea – The tar, after the nearby La Brea Tar Pits) is a sprawling apartment complex in the Miracle Mile District of Los Angeles, California. It encompasses more than 4,000 apartments in both high-rise and garden-style buildings, and sits on 160 acres (0.65 km2) of land with numerous lawns. It’s layout is geometric and lends itself to my map style.

I scaled this one slightly to show more of the area. The goal was to create a full circle out of the school’s track.

I like how this 6 seamed quilt turned out… I can almost count the number of capital buildings.

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.
