Drawing with GPS

This is an awesome community project by Tokyo GPS cycling folks. It is called Tokyo Zoo project. The idea is to use GPS coordinates/waypoints to draw out animal images. To get the community going, they tweet to get feedback on which animal to draw. Then a group of volunteers will draw out (analogue style) and key in the waypoints for the animal diagram. This map coordinates is passed to cycling groups to "trace out" What I love about this effort is the level of community spirit and participation. I am very tempted to do a Merlion to start off... would you help me? I need artists, map guys and helpers...send me a PM if you like to make this happen in Singapore. Thanks!
