  • Abstract

    This paper proposes an idea for new software which graphically represents a person’s movements around their environment. It demonstrates how emerging technologies can be combined in ways to implement the idea and suggests exciting applications of such software. It suggests how we can find the optimum way to visualize this movement and how. over time, we can utilize that information for many functions. The end data from such tracking technology has benefits for the individual and the multitude. This opportunity for innovative development has emerged due to new promising software and devices, which combined in new ways opens exciting possibilities. Enabling people to envision their own movements over time by representing it graphically on a screen is achieved using tracking software, through the subjects’ mobile.

    Introduction
    Why track people’s movements around their environment? Before discussing the technical details it would be beneficial to explain what the potential applications of such software are. Visual information obtained in this manner could be used as a tool to help create the following;

    1.  a Generative/software artist’s apparatus,
    2.  an urban planning device and/or
    3.  a means to assess your life.
