GPS art, walking, routing, shape detection, navigation


In this paper, we present a novel approach to automated route generation of global positioning system (GPS) artwork. The term GPS artwork describes the generation of drawings by leaving virtual traces on digital maps. Until now, the creation of these images has required a manual planning phase in which an artist designs the route by hand. Once the route for this artwork has been planned, GPS devices have been used to track the movement. Using our solution, the lengthy planning phase can be significantly shortened, thereby opening art creation to a broader public.
