In the past people have found faces hidden in satellite imagery, and the German design studio Onformative even went so far as to write a program to scan the whole globe using face recognition software. We have looked at unusually shaped buildings before, including a building shaped like a swastika. We have also pointed you to GoogleSightseeing.com’s collection of interestingly shaped pools.
A recent story in the news is about designer Yousuke Ozawa creating a font out of satellite images of buildings. See the full story here.

It turns out, however, that he is not the first to think of this. Back in 2008 we discovered via Google Maps Mania a clever site called geoGreeting that lets you send a message using letters made from buildings.
