Satellite Art

I was just reading an online article talking about companies taking advantage of Google maps.

What they do is paint their logos on the roofs of their buildings so that when you zoom in using the map feature then switch to satellite mode, you see the logo identifying the building.

So I tried looking at EO Smith from the Google satellite perspective. Click on the title link, center Connecticut in the map area and slowly zoom in using the mapping feature to Mansfield then Rte. 195 and so on. Switch to the satellite mode and you'll see the school and football field.

Now, it seems to me that, come spring, the art department should organize the student body to wear certain colors (or hold up color boards), and see if they can create an EO Smith School logo on the football field, and take a picture of it using Google.

Just a thought.
