A couple of weeks ago Max Goldzweig of the BBC contacted CGD Ltd to see if we had the skills to help them with an experiment that the Science section was undertaking.
Essentially the question being asked was 'if a person can't see where they are going and has no way of orientating themselves can they walk in a straight line?' Max
and a team from the science program went out into a park near Wormwood Scrubs, blind folded the producer, attached a GPS and asked him to walk in a straight line.
Having collected the GPS data the team didn't know how to show the daresults in a meaningful way.
said the BBC
had contacted a number of companies for help without success.
were glad to offer assistance and produced the drawing shown above using imagery from Google Earth.
The result confirmed the theory that a person with no means of orientating themselves could not walk in a straight line but would in fact walk in a circle.
was very pleased with the result as it confirmed the theory.
Of CGD Ltd he
said 'Neil Carey / Carey Geo-Design
was extremely helpful, friendly and professional in helping us find a GPS mapping solution for a short film we made at BBC Science.
/ they did a great job, and I would definitely come back again.
