Semioticbot

Semioticbot is a language creation application. Using the prefixes and suffixes of the English language, Semioticbot fabricates words then seeks out signification on the web via a Google image search.

If an image is returned for the word, it is displayed in the background along with a link to the image; otherwise a "No signification found" message is returned.

Cartographic Smashup 2

cartographic smashup 2 screenshot

This version of the Cartographic smashup uses simple object oriented PHP to return a page with two random static Google maps using the Google Static Maps API.

Using the canvas tag and javascript, the maps are composited with 2 randomly produced gradients creating a unique image that can be printed or saved as a PNG.

Google, however, limits requests to 1000 static maps per day, so there is a limit to the availability of the application.

Using simple CSS rules, the maps are overlayed and with transparency settings become conflated.

Google, however, limits requests to 1000 static maps per day, so there is a limit to the availability of the application.
