Timelapse - The City Limits

*UPDATE May 10th: Here's a video interview that I did this morning for MSNBC : http://on.msnbc.com/juqWHz ---------- I shot this timelapse montage from late 2010 through early 2011. One year in the making.

 

With the intention of showing the duality between city and nature the time lapse, Dominic Boudreault created a beautiful montage of the urban landscape that is a thought-provoking piece. Locations include Montreal, Quebec, Toronto, New York and Chicago.

Landscapes: Volume II

This is an incredibly beautiful time-lapse HD video.  Breathtaking physical landscapes of the "Four Corners" region in the U.S. southwest (mainly Arizona and Utah) with a smattering of cultural landscapes interspersed.  For many students, seeing a beautiful landform piques their interest to then understand the geomorphological processes that made them.

ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!! These incredibly beautiful physical landscapes were gorgeous. With the help of the HD video it all felt so real and breath taking. While I was watching this video I was keeping in mind the thought of the geomorphological process but more importantly how I feel as though we take for granted to not see what else is out there in the country. I myself knew we live in a beautiful country but after watching this video I just grew much much more appreciation for the countries gorgeous landscapes. I also have saved this video because I believe it is so important to show to many others.

Visualizing US expansion through post offices.

This is a visualization of US expansion in North America from 1700 to 1900, seen through changes in the spatial distribution of post offices.

 

This is a fantastic time lapse map that shows historical trends of spatial expansion and  it is perfect to demonstrate HOW diffusion works.

This video is an interesting look at how expansion started in the northeast in the 1700 and slowly extend to the mid-west and even see some spots pop up in the north west before fully reaching that area in 1900.
