Visualizing Washington DC

Professional Work

An ongoing initiative in the Imaging Research Center during the past five years has been the historical reconstruction of Washington DC as it looked at the turn of the nineteenth century. There is an alarming lack of information on this period, and it has been in large part due to the efforts of IRC Director and artist turn historical compiler Dan Bailey that a more accurate visualizations of this period can now be built. The earliest phase of this project centered around producing cinematic sequences utilizing this newly compiled data set. I worked on this project intensely during this period now referred to as “Phase 1”. This culminated in a few key visualizations that verified the research methodology. Aside from project management and the development of intern curriculum, my single largest contribution was producing the animated shot above. Much more information can be found here.
