Up next, U St SE. I can’t wait until I see them all together, side-by-side.

11 hours later, the first of the series is finished. Logan Circle has made a meta-circle in the center of the rendering- it looks fabulous! I am slightly dissapointed that my house didn’t fall on or near any seams because it would look really cool to have my house bent on a reflection. Maybe the next one will! Right now, U St. NW is being made. Anyways, I really like this vernacular I’ve chosen, although it is slightly convoluted because the actual imagery is all from the U St. NW area. 1 down, 3 to go.

I really want to make a rendering using some of the imagery of flooded New Orleans, but I think that will have to wait.

Georgetown Quilt No. 4 by Nikolas R. Schiller

Wow! Who would have thought that I could make something so different, yet so similar with the EXACT same source imagery as Georgetown Quilt #3? As mentioned before, the only difference between the two is the location of the reflected seam in the source imagery. Instead of placing centeral seam of the modified imagery on Key Bridge, I inversed the location by placing the Key Bridge on the outside.

When preparing the imagery for a rendering there are four tiles that comprise the geographic tessellation, but only one of the tiles retains the proper orthographic characteristics (ie, its how it should look when looking at a map, the other three are flipped horizontally & vertically). By moving the orthographically correct tile to one of the different parts of the 4 tiled mosaic I am able to create to 4 completely different outcomes. I sincerely feel that this “discovery” theoretically allows me to have 4 different tessellations for each geographically specific area.

That is definitely my next project, albeit one that will take 4 times as long to prepare & render, but I think it’s worth it. I’d love to see 4 different renderings of the exact same geographic area placed side by side!!! I wonder what location I’ll use? I want to make a rendering of DuPont Circle….hmmmm…..

Georgetown Quilt #3

Using the new modified ‘square’ imagery in the rendering, there isn’t any distortion of the buildings that was present in the previous Georgetown renderings. I really like how the Whitehurst freeway makes the seams of the center! Since I like this rendering so much, I decided to delete the old White House Sunset zoomify page, and made this new one. Zoomify is sooo much fun! :-) Up next is an another Georgetown rendering, but this one is slightly different. Using the exact same source imagery from the USGS, I created a different mosaic arrangement. I think I’d have to make an animation of sorts to show this concept adequately! While maintaining the exact same spatial resolution and geographic location, the imagery can be flipped and arranged in such a way that there becomes a tessellation inverse. I look forward to comparing the results.
