Concentric Quilt - FULL

This is the final installment of the series. The source imagery was reduced to 1 foot per pixel. I am thinking about sampling one to make a derivative map.

Dupont Circle Quilt 2005 #2
|| 9/7/2007 || 9:06 am || Comments Off on Dupont Circle Quilt 2005 #2 || ||

: rendered at 18,000 X 12,000 :

After making yesterday’s map, I thought it would be interesting to expand on the “sister circle” concept and make a similar version of Dupont Circle. The process involved in making this map is something I have never done before. I took the source tile from Logan Circle Quilt #2 and reduced it to the original 3,000 x 3,000 size and opened up Dupont Circle Quilt 2005. Once the opened, I overlaid the source location on to Dupont map and tried my best to place it on the exact same location. This involved an attempt to overlay the circles on top of one another. The assumption was that they were the same in size, so by adjusting the opacity of Logan Circle, I was able to fit them on top of eachother. Of course it wasn’t exact, but what it allowed me to do was to copy the same location and create a very similar tessellation. I know it wasn’t perfect because the circle is slightly truncated when overlapped. You can see this (below) in the way that the fountain does not show up properly. Regardless, I am really pleased with the way the new process turned out.

Using this piece of imagery, I created a new tessellation to create this map. I find it quite beautiful! The ways in which the circles combine to make new circles is the aspect that I like the most.

Logan Circle Quilt

It’s been ages since I made a map of Washington, DC. I’ve been so caught up in the Los Angeles Interchanges Series that I’ve created little else lately.

This map is of Logan Circle which is one of my favorite circles in Washington, DC and is only a 5 minute walk from my house. Unlike Dupont Circle, which I’ve made 4 maps of, this is my first map of Logan Circle (Dupont’s “sister” circle, located EXACTLY .75 miles away). The U St. Quadrant Tessellation series, created exactly 2 years ago, features 4 maps that ‘barely’ include Logan Circle. You can see the circle if you look close enough: U St. SW, U St. SE, U St. NW, and U St. NE
(You can also see how the Quilt Projection has changed in the last two years! Notice the change in scale!!).

Up next is a fractual of Logan Circle created using the 1st derivative tessellation of this imagery.

Jacksonville Quilt

: rendered at 18,000 X 12,000 :

In an effort to cover more areas that have available imagery that I haven’t mapped yet, I decided to make a couple maps of Jacksonville, Florida. Prior to downloading the Jacksonville imagery I made an attempt to get some imagery of Connecticut because I have yet to map the Constitution State. However, there was only black & white imagery and false color imagery, both of which I don’t like to use.

When preparing to download the Jacksonville imagery I had the choice to download .3 meter imagery from 2004 and 1 foot imagery from 2005. Both equal roughly the same spatial resolution (.3 meters = about 1 foot), but what I discovered after viewing the imagery was that Google is currently using the 2004 imagery. Thus I chose to use the 2005 imagery so that I can add another city where I beat Google to the map.
