Geographic coordinate system

Geographic coordinate system

The geographic coordinate system (GCS) is a spherical or ellipsoidal coordinate system for measuring and communicating positions directly on the Earth as latitude and longitude. It is the simplest, oldest and most widely used of the various spatial reference systems that are in use, and forms the basis for most others. Although latitude and longitude form a coordinate tuple like a cartesian coordinate system, the geographic coordinate system is not cartesian because the measurements are angles and are not on a planar surface.

Barn

Barn

A barn is an agricultural building usually on farms and used for various purposes. In North America, a barn refers to structures that house livestock, including cattle and horses, as well as equipment and fodder, and often grain. As a result, the term barn is often qualified e.g. tobacco barn, dairy barn, cow house, sheep barn, potato barn. In the British Isles, the term barn is restricted mainly to storage structures for unthreshed cereals and fodder, the terms byre or shippon being applied to cow shelters, whereas horses are kept in buildings known as stables. In mainland Europe, however, barns were often part of integrated structures known as byre-dwellings. In addition, barns may be used for equipment storage, as a covered workplace, and for activities such as threshing.

History

Bear Creek Studio was established in 1977 by Joe and Manny Hadlock. Their son, Ryan, has since taken over as chief engineer and has learned the family trade over time, earning credit as producer, engineer, and mixer on a variety of different works. Originally a 19th century dairy barn, in 1977 Joe Hadlock decided to convert the 1750 sq. foot structure into a state-of-the-art recording studio while retaining the rural setting. Working with architect Doug Thompson, a new post and beam structure was created on the footprint of the old barn. In the mid-nineties, a new tracking room was constructed which doubled the size of the studio. The studio was also used for commercials from time to time, but the Hadlocks kept those two sides of their business separated, as it was considered in the music industry "not hip" to do commercials.

In 2014, a new recording studio was built in a treehouse, as featured on the February 21 episode of Treehouse Masters.
