I’ve been doing a bit of consultancy for an organisation called ‘Outta Place’ in Halifax http://www.outtaplace.org/. They are going to run a series of GPS workshops in schools and I’ve been helping them out with my experience using GPS. This morning we went on a test walk with the GPS devices, downloaded our tracks and imported them to google maps. Its always good to be reminded that the translation of steps into lines and movement into drawing can be quite exciting when you first do it. The GPS as a box of tricks converts movement from one state into another. And that there’s something exhilerating in stepping onto the grass because the drawing suggests it, even if the path doesn’t.
