Ballwin Quilt #2

My memories of Christmas will always be defined by the time I spent growing up in the Burtonwood Manor Condominiums in Ballwin, Missouri. The map above is of the 1,500 foot radius around childhood bedroom on the second floor of 148 Apartment G, Cumberland Park Ct. I remember helping my mother move out of the apartment in 2003 and now only the memories remain. This Christmas I am hanging out in DC without the family, so today’s map is a reflection on times past. After looking at Google’s imagery and comparing it with my imagery and it’s meta-data, I believe mine imagery is slightly newer. I am basing my theory on the apartment’s rooftop coloring. In Google’s imagery the rooftops appear to be multiple colors, which indicates the installation of new roofing shingles. In the USGS imagery, all of the buildings around my former apartment have the same colored shingle, except my old apartment which is darker. This means that either my apartment was the first to be re-shingled or Google is using imagery that is older than April 2006.

Using this portion of Mount Vernon Quilt #4, I created a derivative tessellation to create this fractal map.

Up next will be the final map of the Mount Vernon series.

Mount Vernon Quilt

Lately I’ve been going to Baltimore to work on some tasks and have spent a fair amount of time traversing the streets of old downtown Baltimore. I find the city to have quite a unique character. I enjoy these getaways from DC very much and it’s cheap- only $14 roundtrip on the MARC trains. Cab rides within DC cost more than that!

Mount Vernon is a historic neighborhood in Baltimore, Maryland. Included in this area (and above map) is my favorite monument in Baltimore: the Washington Monument. I prepared a derivative tessellation to show more imagery of the monument in the next map. It should look interesting.
