The Inaugural Map Recap
|| 3/23/2005 || 5:12 pm || Comments Off on The Inaugural Map Recap || ||

I just got the AWStats analysis back from the Inaugural Map IP logs… All I can say is WOW! I am going to be posting the HTML results on my website later tonight…. It looks like another analysis of the IP logs is needed for some of the IPs that didn’t resolve, so there might be some updated content tomorrow as well…..144,000 domain names takes a long while to analyze!….

GITA in Denver

From the Denver Post

In the future, changes will be mapped in space and time so changes in data on a map can be seen in “real time,” Dangermond said.

“The thought is that we as human beings will be more conscious,” Dangermond said. “We’ll be able to think like a society because we’ll be able to see what we’re doing to the planet.”

Jack Dangermond is the president of ESRI and one of my heroes. I randomly ran into him about a month ago at a National Geographic Society event. I was hoping to meet him at a different event, but right when I walked into the building he greeted me and told me that the presentation was about to begin. I had no clue that it was him! It wasn’t until I sat down that I realized that I had been greeted by the Bill Gates of GIS. I plan on sending him one of my renderings in the near future as a token of my appreciation. Maybe I should make him one called the “Star of Redlands” :-)



GeoSpatial Art
|| 3/12/2005 || 8:56 pm || Comments Off on GeoSpatial Art || ||

A sense of achievement lies in the link above. For nearly a year now I’ve been making this weird type of “art” using aerial & satellite images on my computer and I always had trouble explaining what exactly I was creating. Not Earth As Art, not Geographic Art, but art created in a 3D (spatial) environment using aerial and satellite imagery (geo) – GeoSpatial Art.



Google Maps!
|| 2/9/2005 || 4:37 pm || Comments Off on Google Maps! || ||

Google has come up with a great mapping tool that is easier to use than the old stalwart, MapQuest. I really like the ability to pan across the map and have the content loaded in realtime. MapQuest does not have this interactive feature built in yet, but I imagine that with this new competition MapQuest might have to adapt or be left in the annals of old mapping technology. If you get a minute, check out Google Maps!



GIS on menu
|| 1/26/2005 || 3:07 am || Comments Off on GIS on menu || ||

The global menu for nikolasschiller.com now has a link to my most recent geographic information systems. I decided to use the same image that was used on Michael Moore.com for the Inaugural Map. I am still reveling in the fact that the Inaugural Map got over 115,000 hits! Best work yet :-) But what will be made next?



Battle of the Interactive Inaugural Maps
|| 1/24/2005 || 2:54 pm || Comments Off on Battle of the Interactive Inaugural Maps || ||

So cartoonist Mark Fiore published his humorous Interactive Inaugural Map on January 20th. After looking at it and laughing, I couldn’t help to wonder if he used my map as some sort of basis for his, so I decided to E-mail him and ask. This is his reply :-)

Thanks, glad you liked my map! Yes, yours kept coming up when I was researching the parade route & getting the DC map together– great work, I’m glad you put that together.

-Mark

Inaugural Map on MichaelMoore.com

Coolness!

I just noticed that a screenshot from the Inaugural Map is now on the front page of MichaelMoore.com. And if you click on the shot, it brings you to a page where there are links to just about every organization that is doing something on January, 20th, and my map is included. It got 3,000 hits on Monday alone!

I leave for Maui tomorrow! I can’t wait!!!!

Its not really “Intel” its just fun to see who’s been visiting the Inaugural Map via the Counter Inaugural website. I am glad to see that the Washington Post has been a daily visitor and now someone at the Associated Press is checking it out. I also found it interesting that the Department of Homeland Security is using an IP through Sprint, instead of “DHS.GOV”

It’s not really “Intel” its more or less, “lets see who checked the website out!” Add this to yesterday’s government hits, and I guess you can say that there is a lot of activity in quite a few government agencies in preparation for the Inauguration. One interesting observation is the amount of people at hospitals that have checked out the Map. People from Johns Hopkins and a Kansas City hospital also checked it out.
