Las Vegas – 1st Derivative
|| 2/17/2006 || 8:05 am || Comments Off on Las Vegas – 1st Derivative || ||

: rendered at 18,000 X 12,000 :

I cut out a small portion of Las Vegas Quilt #1 and tessellated it to create this first derivative. When I set this up to render I made a slight, but unimportant mistake. When making these maps I try to keep the final spatial resolution as close as the original spatial resolution and in this map I zoomed out to a point where the final product is about half as detailed as the source tessellation. I wanted the map to contain the outer hexagon (while outline above) but in doing that I had to lose some spatial resolution. Nonetheless, I like how this turned out. I need to make more derivative works simply because they tend to be more pleasing to the eye due to their higher levels of symmetry. I also need to add another category for these maps, but that involves going back over all the maps and reassigning those that are derivatives. It’s not a task I want to do at the moment!

I really like the way the zoom to the center looks. There is something about the way highways can turn into bows that I like!

You can view the Google Map of the source imagery here. The baseball stadium in this map is Comerica Field and the white building next to it is Ford Field. #2 should be up shortly!

Grant Circle Quilt #2

: rendered at 18,000 X 12,000 :

The best part of this map is the way that the seam falls in the middle of Grant Circle and makes it into “Grant’s Oval.” Check the details to see a close up of what I mean!

This map also contains Sherman Circle as well. Having both of the circles so close together makes the map quite interesting to look at. You can view the source imagery on Google Maps. This map was made for the DCCAH proposal.
