American actor Shia LeBeouf has been tweeting a GPS coordinate daily since May 9th without any explanation. The coordinates are all near Denver Colorado. As pointed out in this article, the geographic features at each location resemble a letter of the alphabet. All the letters are clearly readable with north at the top of the screen, which has the benefit of being readable in Google Maps.

The message so far appears to read TAKE ME ANY
It is believed the full message may be TAKE ME ANYWHERE. LaBeouf is expected to appear at the Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art as part of a panel discussion with artists Nastja Säde Rönkkö and Luke Turner on May 22 as part of the MediaLive festival and the message may be a reference to artist Nastja Säde Rönkkö’s project “Take me anywhere”.
This is not the first time someone has used geographic features to spell things out. We have in the past looked at a font created from satellite images and there is geogreeting.com that lets you send messages with letters in satellite images.
