Araschnia levana f. prorsa, 2nd brood.

These butterflies have two broods each year, but unusually both broods have a different form and look completely different, the first brood looks similar to a small tortoiseshell Click Here while this second brood looks more like a smaller white admiral.

Limoges, France.

 

I've been thinking about how to automatically divide up cities into neighbourhoods that make sense to their inhabitants, without having to rely on the official naming/mapping schemes.

 

I wanted to translate descriptive phrases like "the area around Oxford Circus" into actual polygons, so I took a database of the locations of the Underground stations and made a Voronoi diagram from them. If you look closely you should see that each black polygon has a tube stop roughly in the middle of it.

 

We could use these polygons to partition a set of city data and bring human-readable tubestop names to the analysis of it.

Mapping Dreams

The Art of Marc-Antoine Mathieu, 3 June – 15 October 2017

 

Museum Angewandte Kunst

Schaumainkai (Museumsufer) 17

60594 Frankfurt am Main

 

"His drawing style is unmistakable: the clear black line he handles with such infinite variation and consummate skill, the elaborate play of shadows along the boundary between reality and the imagination. The Frenchman Marc-Antoine Mathieu is considered one of the most innovative comic artists of the present.

 

For thirty years he has been publishing albums that change and break the rules and codes of the genre. With precise draughtsmanship and profound linguistic wit, they show readers unaccustomed perspectives and provide insights into the enigma of things.

 

The exhibition Mapping Dreams: The Art of Marc-Antoine Mathieu introduces visitors to the œuvre of this exceptional storyteller and translates the reading experience of his disconcertingly surreal and labyrinthine comic-book realms into the museum interior. From 3 June to 15 October 2017, an exceptional exhibition design builds the bridge to Mathieu’s comic cosmos. Room-filling installations and adaptations of passageway and transition motifs from his works bring the intricate self-reflective / meta-reflective structures of his stories to life and turn the narrative quality and imaginative force of his comic œuvre into an intense sensorial experience.

 

The show also presents a selection of more than fifty original drawings, and thus a cross-section of the albums produced by the draughtsman, writer and scenarist since the early 1990s, as well as unpublished sequences from his current work in progress. Bronze sculptures and animated films by Mathieu are also on view, broadening his narrative palette by offering alternative mediums of access to his œuvre."

The map room, also known as the gallery of maps, in the Vatican Museum is amazing! The room contains 40 topographical maps of the regions of Italy. I took a similar shot a while back during my first visit, but could resist taking another photo during my recent visit.

This B & W Map was copied from the Internet, then coloured and highlighted by me, to show just how large Canada is as compared to Europe. The Quote is from 'Canada Facts', also from the Internet. Canada is outlined in red.

Please enlarge the map to see it better.

 

Canada is populated mainly in cities close to the US Border and has only 1/10th of the population of the US. Services are therefore more limited in evey aspect, due to the thousands of miles across Canada with empty, almost unpopulated areas, more evident in the Northern areas. Parts of the Great Lakes are on the US Side, but I had no accurate area to draw the dividing red line.

 

"Canada is the world's second largest country with an area of 9,970,610 km. (3,851,809 sq. mi.). Russia is the largest with an area of 17,075,272 km. (6,591,055 sq. mi.). Continental United states has an area of 9,428,692 km. (3,639,475 sq. mi.), but with Hawaii, Alaska andits territories it has a combined area of 10,828,548 km. (4,179,819 sq. mi.). Brazil has an area of 8,544,822 km. (3,298,301 sq. mi.). China has a continental area of 9,634,014 km. (3,718,729 sq. mi.), but with outlying territories added it has a combined area of 13,679,699km. (5,280,384 sq. mi.).

I was trying to think up a good title for this image.

I thought of something like

99 map turtles on the dock,

99 map turtles...

 

Didn't fit but now I've got 99 bottles of beer on the wall stuck in my head.

It's yours now.

Misery loves company.

Graptemys geographica

 

Female northern map turtles may take more than 10 years to reach maturity. They nest from June through July and lay a single clutch of up to 17 eggs. They hatch in the fall, and in some cases the hatchlings overwinter in the nest. The incubation temperature of the eggs determines the gender of the hatchlings.
