Jim drew himself an orienteering course :)

Yeah, this is (literally) the neatest example of Strava art I've seen today.

The fact it's in the forest rather than in a park like most of the others makes it more impressive, not that I'm saying staying to a course in the park is an easy feat - unless you've taped it out but looking at Bruce's, it looks like near the end he was trying to comprehend how to finish off the last Easter egg.

Tash - have you seen Fredo's attempt, also very cool.

Oh wow!!!!! Most people cant even sketch a map of the world, let alone do it on strava.

When I saw Edwards Rd, my first thought was ... not on One Tree Hill. Brutal. But then I realised it was the other Edwards Rd on Dead Bullock Track. Much more sensible. Little more than 20 metres relief variation across the map.

Someone should explain to Fredo that Australia is located in the centre of the world, not off to one side.

*near the centre of the world ;-)

That would be McArthur's Universal Corrective map of the world.

Well, that does look more accurate. Appreciate your view, Slow-Twitch.

The RAN once produced a map where Darwin was the centre of the projection

That would have been an Oblique Azimuthal Equidistant Map Projection for radio propagation work using marine shortwave frequencies. Very useful items if you are into radio propogation. Here is one for Sydney. In fact, there are web sites that allow you to create your own based on whatever location you prefer.
