Again very interesting project with our favorite theme!
Tokyo Zoo staff has drawn huge animal ”shapes” over Tokyo that are actually bike routes around the city.
The staff says:
“Using the running log function of the bicycle navigation system, we started the project by drawing gigantic animal geoglyphs over Tokyo. People tweet what animals they want us to draw. From their requests, our staffers (a team of cartographers, J.B.) draw animals over the map. The bike group rides all over Tokyo, logs the routes and uploads the drawing to the website immediately. Progress status with drawing and running footage are posted on Twitter in real-time every day.”
We like… a lot.
