Reconstruction of theSouthend 29-06-2007 formation | |||||

1. |
Draw a circle. Draw and extend the horizontal and vertical centerlines. | ||||

2. |
Copy circle 1 to its lower intersection with the vertical centerline. | ||||

3. |
Copy circle 1 to the lower intersection of circle 2 and the vertical centerline. Move this circle (copy and delete original) to its own lower intersection with the vertical centerline. | ||||

4. |
Repeat step 3 eight times, first with respect to circle 3, then with respect to each newly copied circle, as shown. | ||||

5. |
Repeat step 3 once again, with respect to the last (lowest) circle 4, to yield eleven circles in total on a vertical row, head to tail, as shown. | ||||

6. |
Construct a "two-points" circle, defined by the end-points of a centerline, with the points at the centers of circles 1 and 5. | ||||

7. |
Construct a two-points circle, with the points at the lower intersections of circles 2 and 5 with the vertical centerline. | ||||

8. |
Construct a two-points circle, with one point at the lower intersection of circle 3 and the vertical centerline, and the other point at the center of circle 5. | ||||

9. |
Steps 9 through 15 are a repetition of steps 7 and 8, each with respect to the next circle 4 for the upper point, and alternately the lower intersection and the center of circle 5 for the lower point. First circle 4, lower intersection of circle 5. | ||||

10. |
Next circle 4, center of circle 5. | ||||

11. |
Next circle 4, lower intersection of circle 5. | ||||

12. |
Next circle 4, center of circle 5. | ||||

13. |
Next circle 4, lower intersection of circle 5. | ||||

14. |
Next circle 4, center of circle 5. | ||||

15. |
Next circle 4, lower intersection of circle 5. | ||||

16. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, passing through the center of circle 3. | ||||

17. |
Copy circles 5 through 15 as a whole, while mirroring with respect to the horizontal centerline. | ||||

18. |
Circles 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16 and 17 are used for the final reconstruction. | ||||

19. |
Remove all parts not present in the formation itself. High resolution dwf-file | ||||

20. |
Colour all areas with standing... High resolution dwf-file | ||||

21. |
...or with flattened crop; this will finish the reconstruction of the Southend formation of 29-06-2007. High resolution dwf-file | ||||
