GPS Tracklog Art
Description:
This Waymarking Games category is for designs that you have created by recording your movement on the surface of the earth using the tracklog of your GPS.
Expanded Description:

Ever heard of GPS Drawing? You can see some examples here, at the GPS Drawing website.

This Waymarking Games category is for designs you have created with the tracklog of your GPS receiver by recording your movements.

The design can be anything ... a picture, a written message, a geometrical shape. Here are the rules.

  • You must have created the design by using the recording function of a GPS receiver.
  • The design cannot be totally abstract, it must be pre-planned and figurative in some way.
  • The design must consist of a single, uninterrupted track.

The possibilities are endless: You could take a lead from this Reverse Cache and try your hand at drawing a five pointed star; you could try drawing animals, or writing a message; you could test your rowing skills by sketching on a lake; you could copy an already submitted design, or invent your own ...

What we don't want are completely abstract or emergent designs. "See this walk that I took, it looks a bit like a squashed fish". No thanks.

To submit a piece of GPS Tracklog Art:

  • Provide a photo of the display of your GPS receiver showing the track (mandatory)
  • Take a screenshot of your track displayed on some GPS/Mapping software such as MapSource, GoogleEarth, etc. (This is optional but strongly recommended. You should supply this if you can, but if you have technical problems uploading and displaying the track, then you may still submit a waymark.)
  • The location of your Waymark should be the start of your tracklog
  • A photo of the start point, to give a feel for the area would be good, but isn't mandatory

Additionally, if you decide to upload your log to somwhere on the net, such as Wikiloc then you can do this too, and supply a link, but it's entirely optional.

GPS Tracklog Art! The art where you are the paintbrush!

Instructions for Visiting a Waymark in this Category:
You must visit the given co-ordinates and provide a photo. Beyond that, there are no mandatory additional visit requirements, but you may want to try your hand at reproducing the design in the original Waymark. Go on ... why not? However, you can't log your copy of the original track as a new waymark ... for that you'd need to do it in a new location.
