Washington Circle Quilt #2

Washington Circle Quilt by Nikolas Schiller

By using the exact same tessellation process, I was hoping that this derivative map would look similar to Dupont Circle Quilt 2005 #2 and Logan Circle Quilt #2. Alas, I must have not used the EXACT tessellation process because the circle looks slightly different, but I am still pleased with the result. I intend on making maps of the rest of the circles in Washington, DC.

Federal Triangle Quilt #4

Using this portion of Federal Triangle Quilt #3, I created this derivative map. Unlike the other maps in this series, I decided to *not count* the total number of Freedom Plazas located with in the map. I place my guess at somewhere around 200…

: rendered at 18,000 X 12,000 :

On August 1st the bridge in this map unexpected collapsed killing and injuring scores of people. Having family living in the Twin City area, I took notice of this bridge’s collapse and decided to make a map.

Park La Brea Quilt #3

Park La Brea Quilt by Nikolas Schiller

Park La Brea (Spanish: La Brea – The tar, after the nearby La Brea Tar Pits) is a sprawling apartment complex in the Miracle Mile District of Los Angeles, California. It encompasses more than 4,000 apartments in both high-rise and garden-style buildings, and sits on 160 acres (0.65 km2) of land with numerous lawns. It’s layout is geometric and lends itself to my map style. This is my third iteration of the series featuring the area around Park La Brea in Los Angeles, California. Its one of my favorites :-)

Park La Brea Quilt #2

: rendered at 18,000 X 12,000 :

Park La Brea’s geometric design allows for some excellent manipulations. For the first time in a VERY long time I’ve decided to create not one, but two fractals of a specific location. Number 3 will be up shortly…

Redlands Quilt – 1st Derivative
|| 2/8/2006 || 8:01 am || Comments Off on Redlands Quilt – 1st Derivative || ||

: rendered at 18,000 X 12,000 :

This was created using a tessellated cut from Redlands Quilt #1. If you look at the zoom in to the center, you’ll see a very slight & rare error in the fabric. It’s only a pixel or two, but somehow there was a mistake made when I rendered the map.  Oh well…

Star of Redlands – 1st Derivative Quilt
|| 2/7/2006 || 8:23 am || Comments Off on Star of Redlands – 1st Derivative Quilt || ||

: rendered at 18,000 X 12,000 :

This was created using a tessellated cut from the Star of Redlands. It adds an interesting 3D texture that most of my maps inherently lack.

Meridian Hill Park Quilt – 1st Derivative #2

: rendered at 18,000 X 12,000 :

This map is the final iteration of the series. It shows the most fractalized version of the geography yet. However, I could still make another version. Regardless, these are quite stunning!
