«It’d be interesting for generated printouts of OSM data to encode enough source information to reconnect the scanned, scribbled-on result back with its point of origin, and use it as an online base map just like GPS traces and Yahoo aerial imagery.»

« 4816 is about finding the minute points on the GPS grid in the urban area of Vienna.
The point N 48° 11,000´ E 16° 19,000´ is an example of these 185 intersections
of latitudinal and longitudinal minutes within Vienna. The intercept points are about
1.9 km apart on the north-south axis and about 1.25 km apart on the east-west axis.
The goal with 4816 is to find those intercepts with the support of the GPS tool and
document them photographically. At each intercept point a photo is taken in each
By traversing the GPS intercept points you take a journey through Vienna. The goal is
known. But what will be the nature of its environment? Will it be approachable? What
will be the special thing about it? It will be a interesting process to observe how
long it will take untill all 4816-points are found. A significant number of points
will be in buildings. A few will be in the middle of the Danube. These are two of the
difficulties we have encountered. It remains to be seen which ones await us.»
