Draw as you walk, roll + cycle Edmonton—with the help of GPS
In Spring 2020, we ran a weekly challenge to encourage Edmontonians to be active and outside, while maintaining social distancing
Here’s how it works:
📱 STEP 1: Pick an App
Download a basic GPS running/walking app to your smartphone
📐 STEP 2: Improvise or Plan
Using the theme provided for the week, figure out what you want to draw with GPS.
If you’re happy to just see what you can come up with on the fly, just go for it!
If you’re wanting to be exact with your GPS drawing, consider making an outline beforehand.
You can do this within many of the apps or with an online map. It’ll allow you to sketch out your exact route.
✏️ Step 3: Draw!
- Turn on your GPS app
- Head out the door
- Maintain safe social distancing (2 metres)
- See what you create
📤 Step 4: Share your Creations
Once your GPS art is complete, share it with us and we’ll share it too!
