Tonight’s creation….

Jon Q. Voter: “What does the Green Party stand for?”
Me: “Well there are 10 Key Values…”
Jon Q. Voter: “Environment right?”
Me: “Well, I prefer ‘ecologicial wisdom,’ but that is one of them.”
Jon Q. Voter: “What are the rest?”
Me: “Well I made a nifty google map to help you.”

Taxation Without Representation Google Map

Happy Flag Day!

This google map plots 51 DC flags around the U.S. Capitol. When the flags are clicked a random fact about America’s last continental colony pops up. You can open the source HTML to read them all quickly. I obtained some of the facts and figures from DC Vote and I sent the list out to the members of the DC Statehood Green Party for feedback. The result is what I think is one of the first political google map mashups. Have fun!



Google Map Blog Entry Mashups – DC & America

After hours of coding & geocoding, my first Google Map Mashups are ready… for some reason it only works with Firefox…  I’ll try to fix this!



beating them to the map
|| 3/30/2006 || 8:39 am || Comments Off on beating them to the map || ||

So earlier this month I was all excited because I made couple maps of Augusta, Maine that used USGS public domain aerial photography that Google had not put on to their servers yet. Well sure enough, today I discovered that I beat Google again! This time with the capital of South Dakota- the beautiful town of Pierre.

Last time I only checked Google Maps, and this time I also checked Microsoft’s attempt at mapping called “Windows Live Local,” and sure enough, I beat Microsoft to both Pierre & Augusta! Where is my prize?!?  A beautiful map I guess.

Session Description: This session includes researchers and practitioners creating maps and working with models of map design outside of the traditional empirical model that dominated cartographic design research in the latter half of the 20th century: people who think critically about maps and map design and engage in actual map design and construction based on their ideas. Many artists have embraced the map in such a manner. “Map artists … claim the power of the map to achieve ends other than the social reproduction of the status quo. Map artists do not reject maps. They reject the authority claimed by normative maps uniquely to portray reality as it is, that is, with dispassion and objectivity…” (Wood & Krygier, 2006). Map artist kanarinka claims artists working with maps have an “ethics of experimentation” that is “anything but arbitrary.” “…artists experiment with a particular territory in specific ways to reach unforseen destinations.” (kanarinka, 2006). Other models of map design include narrative and ambiguity, suggested by literary and film theory, multiple mappings (or counter-mappings) suggested by humanistic and critical theory, indigenous mapping methods, and political mapping informed by post-structuralist theory focused on the complexities of power. Post-cartographic map design research and mapping seeks to expand the way we think about, design, and create maps in our map immersed society.



DC Area Farmers Markets

This evening I made the first layer for an ongoing mapping project I’ve tasked myself to, “SUSTAINABLE DC MAP

If you have Google Earth, cut & paste this link as new network connection, and zoom into DC.

If you don’t have Google Earth, you can see two screen shots I took, here & here.

Anthony & I like maps!

From the Washington Map Society

On Friday May 5, 2006, the WMS Annual Dinner will be held at the U.S. Capitol (tentative). Our guest speaker is the Honorable Anthony A. Williams, Mayor, The City of Washington DC (invited). Mayor Williams at one time in his career was a map collector. Details will be provided at coming meetings, by mailed invitation and on the Society’s Website.

Hmmmmmm……….,,,,,,,mmmmm

I bet he’d like one of my maps :)

===
#UPDATE#
So I sat behind him on Thursday, September 14th, 2006 for the Norton Davis Bill hearing and I asked him about his past cartographic activities. He said he sucked, “No one bought any.” Call that advice from the mayor- don’t be a map dealer.
