Fun with your global positioning system: GPS drawing

GPS systems are everywhere these days, thanks largely in part due to ubiquidous iPhones and Blackberries. The technology, proper, isn’t very cumbersome either — one can get a GPS chip small enough to uplink into a laptop computer or even to tie to a dog. That’s what Jeremy Wood did in the below video, creating a virtual map of two dogs running around a park in Oxford.

It’s all part of his project over at GPS Drawing where Mr. Wood has collected oodles of drawings created by adventurous GPS owners and a lot of spare time. Excellent examples are the Elephant in Brighton, UK and Mosquito (!) from Bangkok, Thailand. See if you can do better next time you’re out on the road.
