I mentioned before that I was working on a means to do stereo projections. Well it turned out to be easier than I thought. I simply had to make the random image be the same image displayed on the left and right. It’s not what I’d call perfect stereography, but it’s a good start. I plan on making at couple more of these using the details from the exact centers of the maps.
The pixels used in this interactive map are, follow me here, a 4,200 by 4,200 section from a 18,000 by 12,000 map made in 2006, reduced to 800 x 800, then reduced again to 400 x 400. The reductions are done so the map zoom-ins both fit on the screen. The first reduction is what you’ll find if you click on the (more..) link on my quilt projection blog entries. The second reduction is done via the HTML on the webpage so people with screen width’s less than 1600 pixels wide will be able to see the imagery side by side.
The background is the opposite of Lost in America’s Last Colony and features places & spaces in Washington, DC. I might remove this altogether to make it easier on the eyes….
