Middle School Teacher Creates "GPS Art" From Seat Of His Bike

Middle School Teacher Creates "GPS Art" From Seat Of His Bike"Donkey Kong," "Field Goal," "Jellyfish Invasion," "Gargoyle," and "Hammer Time"

If the images above aren't quite impressive you might need a little context to understand just what you're looking at. Middle school science teacher Michael Wallace, 39, of Baltimore, Maryland has been creating these pictures, etch-a-sketch style, onto his GPS-enabled phone for the past couple of years. The end result is something that looks like what a 3 year old would do with a crayon, but considering the medium he's working with is considerably more impressive. As he explains it, the project began with an attempt to scrawl his name, "Wally," onto a map of the US via a GPS-tracked bike ride. He's gone on to create some fairly intricate work, compiled at his site Wally GPX for your viewing pleasure.
