Scale Independent

I make maps, and create multi-image high resolution images at different scales. From sub micron resolution to 300 megapixel portraits of people, to five gigapixel views of Burning Man…and more.


I am available for various things, maps, Gigapan and Portrait photography, events, archival work, and Django/Python programming. Please contact me!


I also write software (my GitHub account), fabricate equipment, including a CNC controlled microscope and Cocktail Robots, write books (Mapping Hacks and Google Maps Hacks), and passionately evangelize for the technologies and tools I love.

Here are some notes and images from that trip.
