BMW Motorrad GPS Drawings
BMW has created a website where users can create their own geoglyphs. Or, to put it another way, you can draw interestingly shaped patterns on Google Maps.
Of course being a car company there is a driving scenario attached to the project. Or draw a vector based illustration like Free vector map World Time Zones Political map 2, Adobe Illustrator, download now maps vector clipart. Namely, once you have created your drawing, you can then download the route into your GPS device and drive your very own drawing.
As well as creating routes of your own you can browse the drawings of others. You can search for previously created routes by ‘top rated’, latest drawings’ or you can browse for routes geographically from a Google Map.

Illustrator tip #2: Enforce miter limits on offset paths
This next tip addresses an issue that always pushes my buttons when I see it, and I most often see it occurring on the sides of trucks on the highway.
Someone has designed a logo or word mark and put an offset path around it, but he has ignored one simple thing – miter limits. This results in an overly jagged, menacing path which is completely distracting and inappropriate. (See above.)
You could lose an eye on those points!
The reason the “i” appears to be growing horns is because the miter limit is set too high. The lower the miter limit, the more beveled the corner. (The miter limit controls when a corner gets mitered – pointy – as opposed to beveled – squared off.)
The lower the miter limit, the more beveled the corner. #illustratortips
Or use round joins and avoid the problem altogether!
Bonus offset path tip! Once your type is perfectly adjusted, it’s also a good idea to do a Pathfinder > Unite on the offset path so that you don’t end up with a messy snarl of paths – the best paths are the simplest ones.
