Ok, the title is a little over dramatic, but it is true. I have been thinking about making a map showing the distribution of Oithlings across the globe, that way we have an easy visual reference to find where the closest like minded weirdos are located.
Here is what I need from my fellow freaks (if you want to be on the map)
State, Zipcode and Oithling name.
That is it. I do not want to get more specific than that, cause while I want to know what area you live in I do not want to know WHERE YOU LIVE, that is just creepy.
The more responses I get, the more complete the map will be and the better reference it will be to us Oithlings, and to andy as well.
Once the map is complete I will post it as a pdf for all to see and use.
This is kinda cool (at least to someone into geography and mapping) I was able to successfully geo-reference Andy’s original Low Life map to an actual global projection (with only minor distortion). That means that once I have data and make this map, you will be able to see WHERE ON OITH YOU ARE!
(The geo-referencing worked pretty well in the US, though some of the people who live on the coast may end up in the water (sorry California) I am doing my best to make sure it doesn’t happen though, I promise.
At the moment all I have to show is my final project for my GIS class (It is 44 MEG ish) and it only covers data for the 48 contiguous United States. I should be able to adjust it fairly quickly to make an 8.5 X 11 PDF (currently it is 32 X 44 and it shows the backers for The Whole Hole and Redredged.)
