  4. I apologize, I have not been keeping up with my blog!! The figure ground was created by analyzing the building's use [each color represents a different function ie: commercial, public, multifamily residential, private residential, etc.]. The blob formation is actual walking times from one location on the Freedom Trail. The distances were actually calculated via google earth, and actually walking the site with a stop watch. This helped me take into account the steep topography of this area in Boston. I hope this helps [although it is 8 months late.....]

  5. This is really impressive! I am an architecture student working on a project in this area. I would love to use this map to work off of if you would allow. I'm not sure what you used to make it, I would guess illustrator but any file type you would be willing to send me I would greatly appreciate. My email is jakorby@iastate.edu if you would be willing.
