This map was taken with a Canon S90 camera dangling from a [tyvek and bamboo delta kite](http://publiclaboratory.org/notes/mathew/7-19-2012/easy-cut-delta-kite-plans). Alex Norman did most of the flying:
Wind was not steady, ranging from 6-8mph. The delta kite is a little dicy when the wind drops, as it has a tendency to over fly when the wind is dropping. We solved this issue by just letting line out when the wind is going down, which is counterintuitive but effective.
