Map: Biggest Drawing in the World

This is a map that has created the largest self-portrait in the world.
A GPS system, traveling around the world through delivery trucks and other modes of transportation, became the trackable strokes of the medium, or the "pen". A very long list of specific coordinate travel destinations given to the delivery vehicles, marked the points of the image on the map. The GPS was able to track the entire journey - lasting 55 days, going through 6 continents and 62 countries with a total length of 110,664 km.
