Abstract

In the recent years, consequence of technology improvements, a new kind of art has appeared. It is called GPS art and consists in drawing on a digital map by recording the path followed using a GPS device. The fact is that not everyone is able to make the drawing of a certain figure. Just the so-called GPS artists come up with the path, so it makes this kind of art not reachable to some people. The idea of this thesis is to enable people to create GPS art without relying on imagination to come up with a path for a certain figure. In order to achieve that, a system that finds that path in a map for a given figure as input has been developed. In order for people to use this system, it has been integrated within a mobile application, so users are able to find the path to follow easily.
