The District at Night

Fascinated with maps and geographical infographics, but lacking a high-resolution nighttime aerial of Washington, DC, we decided to make one. This is actually a layered composite map made from several sources, including a transit map, population density map, light map, and layers showing intensity of social media shares (Twitter and Facebook). 

The three bright spots toward the top are Bethesda, Silver Spring, and College Park. The bright spot toward the bottom is Old Town Alexandia, with National Airport just above.

This is a six color screenprint on 100 pound cover weight paper. The prints are for sale in our online store and at Avenue Jack in Dupont Circle, DC.
