link to 3mb 10 second animation of the Inner Circle of Rochester, New York
So late last night I read Geoff Manaugh’s BLDGblog entry about “the City of Retroactive Mathematics,” and made the above animation. It’s composed of three elements: a light source, two spheres of different sizes, and the imagery. Prior to reading his article I was about to make the next Rochester map, so I continued using the Rochester imagery to create what looks like a urban molecule giving birth to a smaller version of itself. Would that be an asexual city?

Using the same revised templated used in “GWU Memory,” I made a new rendering of downtown DC. I think the coolest part of the rendering is the “bending” of the White House!
I must thank L’Enfant…

So yesterday my sister asks me if I can get her imagery of San Fran for her school project. This afternoon I tried going to the USGS and had their web-based GIS not work properly, so I gave up attempting to acquire the imagery. Later today (like 4 hours later), I found an old CD that was laying on top of my TV and I realized that CD had the “San Francisco Memory” rendering on it. So I opened it up, and to my amazement, the spot at which the earth and the ocean meet near the center of the rendering is where the property she is working on is located. On March 5th, I created special memory….

I have finally created what I feel is a complete Mandala. Normally the renderings only have 2 axises of symmetry and this one has 4, making it my most sophisticated work yet. I’ve already sold my first copy! The process I used to create this rendering is going to be replicated and used for the “Lenz Project” and I am SO excited about how they’ll turn out!!!
This print was sold to Dr. Marie Price, Chair of the GWU Geography Department.

I think my sister is going to love this print. Slowly but surely, I’ve rendered images of all the locations my family is located. In the full size version of this rendering, you can actually see my sister’s apartment! I think my favorite aspect of this rendering this the way the Golden Gate Park appears to give some rectangular symmetry. Here is a Google Map of the same area:
The source image from Space Imaging was rotated so the resulting rendering has Golden Gate Bridge at both the top & bottom center. Of course the full size version allows one to see the bridge in better detail. This is my third rendering of this series.

So the domes in the center are the Minneapolis Convention Center. The domes give the rendering an interesting degree of symmetry (which I love). The first print of this rendering is going to my colleague from ESRI, Angie, who lives in Minneapolis and gave me the inspiration to make this rendering. I used the same template for this rendering as I used for the “Post 9/11 Reflection #3” rendering, yet since I used imagery from the USGS, I can sell this baby to the highest bidder. I wonder if my relatives in St. Paul would like a copy? Eh.
Hello visitors from The Dredwerkz. I definitely think GeoURL is one of the coolest websites out there. It gives the web an interesting spatial context which can show how people with various opinions and lifestyles can cohabitate within a neighborhood, and best of all blog about it!
FYI, this person also has a blog in my house. She just hasn’t been added to the database yet. I think you might find hers a little more fun to read than mine!
