“Land Lines” from Google is a really addictive game that converts your random scribble into an actual geometric pattern that is visible from space. And its right in time for the holidays.
All you got to do is to drag or draw across the screen and “Land Lines” will complete the picture for you – finding a water body, highway, river, landmass; something that matches the pattern of your scribble.
“Start with a line, let the planet complete the picture” – Zach Lieberman
Land Lines is a Chrome experiment made by two creative coders Zach Lieberman and Matt Felsen in collaboration with the Google Data Arts Team. The game works on your phone (or PC’s) web browser without the need for a dedicated app (or backend servers).
Draw or Drag
It’s amazing to witness your random scribble turn into a full picture of the earth and what’s even more mesmerizing is that the same pattern throws up a different satellite imagery each time.
If drawing random scribbles isn’t entertaining enough, you can also drag across the screen and travel across the globe in a seamless connected fashion. The “drag” mode is way more engrossing than the “draw” mode!
