Chicago Quilt by Nikolas Schiller

So I’ve finally got around to making some maps of Chicago. I’ve had this imagery sitting on my computer for almost a year now, but I just never got around to tessellating it. I chose this location of downtown Chicago (view google map) because it is where the AAG’s Annual Meeting is going to take place next month.

Ideally, I’d like to have one of these printed out and maybe given away in a raffle similar to last year. Anyways, I am making a few different maps of Chicago. I have #2 finished rendering and #3 is in the pipeline. Tonight I will prepare both of them for tomorrow. I think it might be a good idea to snag some other imagery of Chicago to make my coverage of the city slightly better.

Redlands Quilt – 1st Derivative
|| || 8:01 am || Comments Off on Redlands Quilt – 1st Derivative || ||

: rendered at 18,000 X 12,000 :

This was created using a tessellated cut from Redlands Quilt #1. If you look at the zoom in to the center, you’ll see a very slight & rare error in the fabric. It’s only a pixel or two, but somehow there was a mistake made when I rendered the map.  Oh well…

Star of Redlands – 1st Derivative Quilt

: rendered at 18,000 X 12,000 :

This was created using a tessellated cut from the Star of Redlands. It adds an interesting 3D texture that most of my maps inherently lack.

After assembling the source imagery and rendering the map, I found some found beauty when post-processing it. Little did I know, but the found beauty lies directly at the center of this map. You’ll have to view the rendering details to read about what discovered. Let’s just say the beauty is a terrible beauty and oddly I can now add this map to the list of maps that contain a memorial
