Thanks to Curt for sending:

“Many of your readers have questions about the imagery and data captures when flying our tethered surveillance balloon over various projects in Washington DC. This typical base panoramic image is used to overlay various thematic maps or neighborhood-specific information.

A still from above the Building Museum, check out the 365 awesomeness here.

Here is a recent sample from ascensions to 750 ft agl in July 23rd above the National Building Museum.

If any of your community-minded followers want to contribute creative 3d mapping data or practical mapping information, I would be happy to provide a dynamic photo mosaic background free of charge. Curt Westergard, Landscape Architect 703 850 8323″
