Connecting The Dots: Not Just for Kids

This somewhat childish looking snapshot represents about 30 or 40 hours of work (including learning how to do strange things with Arcview). I get to do it all over again for sanitary sewers too, although, it'll take a fraction of the time now that I know what I'm doing.

I'm sure that there are easier ways to do some of the things I've done, and certainly more acurate. Most of the shapes were picked off of a pixally printout of quasi-proposed archichitectural drawings meant to impress rather than be acturate. I had to superimpose the actual NS grid onto this picture and then identify the location of the corners of the buildings. I then literally connected the dots, which explains why some of the buildings are slightly funny shapes, but hey - what can you do ath this time of night other than blog and/or go home an go to bed.

I actually added a whole bunch of new links to this blog, only to have the template editor crash when I saved my edits. Obviously, you'll have to wait until I get around to redoing it (not in the next 2 weeks.

At any rate, I should go to bed or get back to work (seeing as I have lots of it, and Tim Horton's is making me giddy - I won a coffee this time!!!)
