Math Photo: Coordinatization

Rectangular Coordinates

In order to better understand a space we often impose a coordinate system on it.  This allows us to study the characteristics of that space in particularly mathematical ways, like through distance, area, and curvature.

Looking at the city through this rectangular mesh put me in mind of this process of coordinatization, and highlights how the coordinate system is indeed an abstraction from reality and an active choice we make.
