After spending much of last week working on the LA Interchanges series, I decided to switch it up a tad and make a map of Orlando, Florida. I am not sure what maps I’ll be making next….

Enrico Fermi Nuclear Reactor Quilt
|| 7/23/2007 || 8:01 am || Comments Off on Enrico Fermi Nuclear Reactor Quilt || ||

: rendered at 18,000 X 12,000 :

In November of 2005 I went to Ann Arbor, Michigan for Thanksgiving. While riding in a bus from Toledo to Detroit I saw the Enrico Fermi Nuclear Reactor off in the distance. When I was making the maps of Detroit last year I tried to download the imagery of the reactor, but was unable to because the USGS coverage of Detroit did not reach far enough south. And now it does :-)

This map uses the same cloud motif that Baton Rogue Quilt uses, but there is a larger issue I am expoliting in this map. No, it’s not Homer Simpson job, but national security. In my opinion, nuclear power plants are some of the most dangerous places on earth and should be guarded heavily, even through redaction. Yet while Google is censoring downtown Washington, DC, anyone in the world can download high resolution imagery of a nuclear power plant in rural Michigan. Where is the security? Well at least I see beauty.

U.S. Department of State Quilt by Nikolas Schiller

Following up on my discovery of Google’s censorship, I’ve decided to make my next maps be in the area in Washington, DC that is currently censored. By mapping this area, I can easily claim that I’ve beat Google to the map for each location.

The area around the State Department is one that is quite familiar to me. The dorm that I lived in for 2 different years at GWU is located in this map. Alongside the State Department Building (the largest building in the map), there is the Federal Reserve Building, Office of Personnel Management, National Academy of Sciences, and a few other of buildings of note, like the Red Cross HQ and the World Health Organization.
