Some rather poor photos from Southwest Louisiana. Thought they might be good reference material for anyone doing swamp-like areas. Taken through my dirty plane window, so sorry about the quality.

Here is some inspiration for at the cosmic level, but I think we could do something similar for other roots of maps.
Inspired by images from the Hubble space telescope, photographer Navid Baraty has been creating "out-of-this-world" images for his WANDER series — an imaginary spacecraft mission that stands for Wormhole Accelerated Nomad Delivery Reconnaissance — by...

It serves a similar function though. Mods will still need to approve, which is actually better.

Wanted to get your input, thoughts, and opinions on this as well. NOTE: There is no right or wrong answer here. It is just opinion and a curiosity to me.

As I was looking through some old school style maps, and trying to calm down my twitching eye at all the long straight halls and right angles, I began to wonder what exactly the use of the long straight hallways provide. Why would the builders of a dungeon spend all that time digging out all these long hallways and making all those right angles?What advantage do they provide? Why did the builders invest all that time and energy if there was no advantage to be gained by them? Even from a strategic perspective, what do those provide to the builders/residents? I'm honestly curious because every architectural design principle within me is screaming WHY?! WHY?! WHY?!

We should always consider the impact of function on form. For architectural design in dungeons, take a look at some of the burial sites in the Valley of the Kings. Part of the agenda was to prevent tomb robbers having an easy time; religious iconography and possibly numerology also figure, but I can't say how.

The sites were dry but deserts are prone to flash flooding each decade or so; presumably the Egyptians (who were at the burial game for literally millennia) considered drainage as well.

The most extensive tomb is no 5, a tomb for the sons of Rameses IV.

I snapped these while flying from Denver to Houston this afternoon. Does anyone know the story behind the circular farmland? Also, in case you are curious, these are not black and white. That's snow.

Centre-pivot irrigation seems so alien to me, coming from a region where irrigation isn't an issue. First time I ever saw photos of it was while looking at Area 51 on early Google Maps - there's a bunch of them to the north of Area 51 in the middle of the desert and they look truly weird out there.

Especially the Pac-Man shaped one: https://goo.gl/maps/xxwOQ
