U.S. Department of State Quilt by Nikolas Schiller

Following up on my discovery of Google’s censorship, I’ve decided to make my next maps be in the area in Washington, DC that is currently censored. By mapping this area, I can easily claim that I’ve beat Google to the map for each location.

The area around the State Department is one that is quite familiar to me. The dorm that I lived in for 2 different years at GWU is located in this map. Alongside the State Department Building (the largest building in the map), there is the Federal Reserve Building, Office of Personnel Management, National Academy of Sciences, and a few other of buildings of note, like the Red Cross HQ and the World Health Organization.

Lincoln Memorial Quilt 2005 #2

: rendered at 18,000 X 12,000 :

I made a couple different tessellations of the area around the Lincoln Memorial. This map features the same imagery used for this map, but it’s tessellated differently to create a new design.

Lincoln Memorial Quilt 2005
|| 7/11/2007 || 8:31 pm || Comments Off on Lincoln Memorial Quilt 2005 || ||

: rendered at 18,000 X 12,000 :

I decided to start mapping the area that Google has censored. I discovered that the Lincoln Memorial lies on the line of censorship [link to Google Map zoom-in]. The line starts right at the stairs of the Lincoln Memorial, which means that the reflection pool imagery in my map is newer than Google’s imagery. The Vietnam Memorial is also newer in my map but is censored by Google.

RFK Quilt #3
|| 5/3/2007 || 4:10 pm || Comments Off on RFK Quilt #3 || ||

: rendered at 18,000 X 12,000 :

The RFK Stadium maps have been quite popular with sports fans. The original two feature the stadium set up for soccer, but since the original aerial photograph was taken in 2005 the stadium shows a baseball diamond where the Washington Nationals play. Like the previous two, I rotated the source imagery 45 degrees so that the tessellation had the East Capitol Street bridge creating an X in the center. However, unlike the previous two, this source aerial photograph was taken at .16 meters per pixel and did not allow the area around the stadium to fit into the standard size I use for all my tessellations without losing the source spatial quality. Regardless, I am very pleased with this map! Stadium clusters….

Eastern Market Quilt #3
|| 5/2/2007 || 12:30 pm || Comments Off on Eastern Market Quilt #3 || ||

: rendered at 18,000 X 12,000 :

Earlier this week the historic Eastern Market building burned down. I decided to make another map in it’s memory. I made 4 different tessellations before settling on one that placed the building on a line of symmetry. I really like the way Pennsylvania Ave. creates the star design!

Home Quilt #6

: rendered at 18,000 X 12,000 :

This is the 10th map of my neighborhood and I think it’s the 3rd fractal. It turned out perfectly- minus the fact that I acciddentally yanked the power plug to my external hard drive and had to start the rendering all over again… My next map should be of Charleston, South Carolina.
