I finally got around to making the maps for the University of Texas at Austin. I’ve been sitting on this imagery for a few months and with the arrival of a guest from Austin I felt it was time to revisit Austin, Texas again.
For these three maps I used three different tessellations to create three different versions of the same geography. Unlike most of the maps in the Quilt Projection I had to reduce the source imagery to half of it’s original spatial resolution in order to create my normal sized tessellation of 6,000 x 6,000. Essentially, at 1ft per pixel the entire campus was 6,000 x 6,000 in size, so I had to reduce it to 3,000 x 3,000 to create the standard sized 6,000 x 6,000 tile I use for all the maps.
