Davin, that's awesome! I've wanted to see this for a long time! What is the contour interval BTW? And approx elevation? (maybe full contour numbering is revealing too much?)

I think elevation stuff is shared with people that have been here.

Davin and I spent a lot of time talking about what is okay to share publicly and what is not okay.

A lot has changed since this map was made last summer. Here are a few ant village updates (with more to come in the next few weeks):

Jim is Evan and Kai's ant neighbor to the north.

Sean is on the other side of cat pond.

Steve, Evan's dad, is now Evan's neighbor to the south (on Chris' former site).

Late, late reply/clarification:   as you might have already figured out, kadence is right, the "hollowed out volcano with good submarine access" is a ~500-ft peak at base camp. In other words, wheaton labs is actually two pieces of property, 'base camp' and 'the lab,' which are about two miles apart. This map is for the lab only.

And more updates:

Janet's ant village plot is between Jesse's and Josh's.

wofati 0.8 is what we now call Cooper Cabin.

Allerton Abbey was formerly wofati 0.7.

The 0.7 and 0.8 mean they are test or beta versions. We're not even up to a version 1.0 yet!

I ran across this crappy image I made of the lower part of base camp. This probably shows about 1/4th or 1/5th of the property. The map is oriented with north at the top.

The hollowed out volcano with good submarine access rises to about a 500-ft peak directly west of the shop/auditorium (labeled only as auditorium in this map). Volcano road zig-zags from the red cabin (it's a turn off of the bend in the driveway not shown in this map) up the hillside to the back of the volcano.

The loveshack is also west of the shop/auditorium, and the tent pads are west up the hillside above the house and office/garage.

I made this for an older base camp dining hall / feeding the masses thread:



Note about water hydrants:  
the water hyrdrant across from the office and house is a bit hidden behind our huge hugelkultur berms.
the two water hyrdrants closest north and west of the shop have moved! (Thanks Fred!)

I think Janet was working on better base camp map for renters, though I'm not sure if she finished it.

Are there labels for this map?


My terrible, not to scale, colorful drawing above labels most of the buildings at base camp.

I incorporated labels to the Wheaton Labs Base Camp map. Note: I'm sure there have been more structures added to the property since this map's creation.

I placed both properties next to each other in the appropriate orientation. There is a South arrow resting upon the ground in the center bottom. I placed a higher resolution image on the digital market as a Desktop Background download that can be found here.
