Getting Started: The Site: #001

Over the next few posts, I’ll look at how to best capture site information for use in some very basic site analysis.  The key application for this will be Google Earth, as it seems to be the best tool at my disposal to begin capturing this information.


Note: If you are using Google Earth in a Professional Context, there are some sticky items in the EULA to watch out for.

Why Chicago?

I lived in Chicago, but now live in New York City.  I love both cities, but I couldn’t think of a good place to put the project I had in mind.   That with my natural tendency towards water, and a somewhat irreverent notion of a second Burnham Pier(2.0) in mind , I landed here.
