i made a tiled plot yesterday. 4x A3 sheets of paper.

Retweeted by inconvergent @quasimondo @wheresaddie @FedExEurope hope it's not Klatchian coffee. @MikolaLysenko @quasimondo @wblut thanks. i might try this. it has the benefit of being easy, and probably fast enough for my case atm. @wblut @quasimondo fair enough. sounds a lot like what i had in mind. just pick a grid density and accumulate "hits" for each cell. @wblut @quasimondo what is a cell in this context? pixel/voxel? @quasimondo @wblut i agree. but i thought it was worth a question. raster maps are a little finicky. @quasimondo @wblut maybe you know, @MikolaLysenko? @quasimondo @wblut previously i've used an underlying raster map to do this. but i'd like a vector based method if… hints on a good way to check to what extent a line segment will cover an area that already has a high density o… @quasimondo @tombielecki @simondlr yeah, i know you knew about the idea. i meant this in particular. @quasimondo @tombielecki @simondlr ah, should have figured you were aware of this already. @tombielecki @simondlr you might want to talk to @quasimondo about this. but i can't say i like the idea that the a… mustard economy.the primary medium of payment on the island is now mustard. naturally.i got sloppy with this. but yeah, it works.
