Since I'm involved with grid projects in Eugene and Portland, I was intrigued when I stumbled recently on Portland Ground. Miles Hochstein seems to be a one-man grid project, systematically dividing Portland into neighborhoods and attacking it with a camera. Judging from his personal site as well as the style of his photography Hochstein seems motivated more by an obsessive need to categorically document than the more art-influenced photography of the other grid projects. Folks looking for consistently entertaining photography might search elsewhere, but if you're curious what Portland actually looks like, this site is as good as any.
