Real Time Maps of Your Life

This museum in Amsterdam is, I take it, having an exhibit about maps. Well, I’m not sure they’re a museum. They’re known, rather hilariously, as the WAAG society. Regardless, as part of the project, they’ve sought volunteers to attach small GPS trackers to themselves for a day. They track the movements of the person across the city, creating these fascinating real-time maps that show where and how that person has moved. Apparently they’ve got movies now too (I’m not going to risk that with my pesky dial-up connection).
