I did some more photography for a local insectarium called Entomica today. This time I took a number of photos of the insects in their surroundings. The shiny black insect is a rhinoceros beetle and the yellow one is a man-faced stink bug. You can find out more about Entomica here: http://www.millmarket.ca/#!entomica/xynyt

Here's an overview of the projects and activities that I worked on and partook in over the past week. The screenshots included in this post show an overall view of my map on the left, showing how I've completed demarcating and labeling townships and other divisions, and a view zoomed into 100% on the right to showcase the creek names that I've added.

This week I continued working on the physical elevation map of my area, leaving my usual population data research projects at the side for now. I continued to colour in lakes by my own classification system and elevation by colour. Also, I've been looking for volunteer work and more opportunities to interact in the city I live in.

Here's an overview of the projects and activities that I worked on and partook in over the past week. The screenshot included in this post shows how my physical elevation map has been progressing, with the main map of the left and the Elliot Lake insert that I will be grafting in on the right.

This week I continued working on the physical elevation map of my area, leaving my usual population data research projects at the side for now. I continued to colour in lakes by my own classification system and elevation by colour. I'm happy to announce that I've finished colouring in the majority of my physical elevation map and I'm now working on how to tie it all together, begin to add boundaries and names, and collect data from it. I've also ...
