one world

The biggest mosaic to date made from the Long Line group tiles. Look at the large or original sizes to see the individual tiles.


Large size (1024x717) | Original size (6000x4200)


Every tile is a square photograph with a line running through it, connecting to neighboring tiles. The algorithm used for creating this mosaic makes sure that there is just a single branching line that connects every point on the map with every other point. Unfortunately, in this image it doesn't wrap around on the sides.
