Bichelangelo and GPS Traces as Pictures

Posted by apm-wa on 28 December 2018 in English (English)

Bichelangelo draws a dinosaur using GPS traces. Sorry, I could not resist posting this when it popped up on Facebook. It would never have occurred to me that GPS traces can be used to create art. However….

Happy New Year to one and all!

That has been along since GPX tracks exist. Especially the dirty pictures. Nothing has changed since the Romans :). The people of Gent even build their roads to represent dirty pictures :) = https://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=10/51.1102/3.7973

Thank you for sharing the find. Had seen GPS tracks by ships and aeroplanes, drawing hearts for Valentines’. Impressed that this user visualised a dinosaur / T-rex like shape on the map.
