A new map catalog

Friday, August 28th, 2020

During our pandemic quarantine, I have been working on lending order to my KAP South Bay image catalog. About half of my sessions do not have a Flickr album to convey representative images so I am working on posting images from some of my earlier sessions. This week I put together a new way to access […]

Geotagging South Bay aerial photographs

Thursday, December 31st, 2009

There have been a few threads over the last couple of years about using GPS loggers to tag photographs with location data. The general notion has appeal for it would be nice to provide specific locations for my work in the South San Francisco Bay salt ponds. To date I have geotagged almost a thousand […]

Weep Revelation

Monday, March 10th, 2008

For a couple of years now Wayne and I have been puzzled about the driving forces for the environmental, and hence microbiological, circumstances of a site just north of Alviso. It is a trough about 50 meters long that we have named ‘the weep’ for it is always moist to some degree. If you search […]

Alviso Outing

Sunday, April 1st, 2007

On a fine, sunny Saturday in early spring Wayne and I decided we should hike out to check on the Alviso weep site. We have been tracking this site for about a year now and it continues to impress with entertaing diversity over time and space. On this occasion we found the weep site in […]

A new Flickr / Yahoo Map interface

Wednesday, August 30th, 2006

As a big fan of locative media the recent release of an Flickr / Yahoo Map integration caught my eye. The marriage is experienced through the eyes of Flickr where the Organize Panel now sports a Map tab for drag and drop geo-tagging. Under Flickr’s Explore menu you will find a map browsing option that […]

Herons Head musings

Monday, January 2nd, 2006

I have spent a delightful afternoon poking around for background information about the strip of San Francisco shoreline that now hosts Heron’s Head Park. This has been great fun for in a brief period I have read tales rooted in the India Basin area about the remarkable Long Bridge, imported racehorses, a drastic transformation of […]

Interactive Heron’s Head map online

Friday, December 30th, 2005

At our last project meeting I promised to develop a collaborative geo-annotation map for Heron’s Head Park. After a few fits and jerks I have one up and running: If the map lags in loading try hitting the refresh button on your browser.

Arden Salt Works

Wednesday, November 16th, 2005

I continue to work on interpreting the LaRiviere Marsh landscape. Part of the puzzle certainly lies in the history and layout of August Schilling’s Arden Salt Works Plant #1. The more I read, the more interesting this enterprise becomes. Image of August Schiiling’s Arden Salt Works on the leeward side of the Coyote Hills, which […]

Green with envy

Monday, November 14th, 2005

During the last month or so I have exchanged notes with Laura Watt, environmental consultant and ace photographer. Last year Laura got a behind the scenes tour of Cargill’s Newark Salt Works and captured a lovely set of images. I would so much like to do this. Harvested salt awaits processing in Newark — photo […]

New collaborative geo-annotation map up

Wednesday, October 26th, 2005

I have completed the posting of a new collaborative geo-annotation map for the South Bay. This map covers a large section of the South Bay and can be zoomed in to show great detail. New in this iteration are a few interface improvements (e.g., zoom to bounding box in addition to the previous keyboard shortcuts […]
