Mobile Phone Drawing Maps

Landlines is a multi-user collaborative drawing tool for GPS enabled mobile phones, in which users draw by moving in real space.

There are two different visual interfaces for drawing these route maps using this innovative drawing tool, the ever popular googlemaps application, and a Flash application ‘Mapper’.

Mapper allows you to see routes as live drawings, in collaboration with other users. This is the application that they use for exhibitions and workshops.They have concentrated on the drawn quality of the line, keeping the whereabouts of users anonymous, and on the resulting map like drawings gradually revealing a place.

These are great, abstract ways of drawing with different media and create route maps of their journeys.
