Bridges of Collier County

Sometimes I think Google Earth makes us lazy.

Instead of true inquiry, we simply zoom in and out.


This map allows you to connect bridge numbers
to the natural flow features that feed them

And yes I know its a powerful tool,

But to really dig in you have to integrate information from other sources.


It's only then that a deeper understanding starts to float to the top.
Can you see how the numerical
sequencing of the Tamiami Bridges starts
anew in at the Collier-Dade line?

These maps opened my eyes to details I previously missed.

And allowed me to share those observations with others.


At the end of the day, that's what it's all about.
