Chrome Caving Expedition

We went on a field trip at work to a wonderful cave a few hours north of Munich. I’ve illustrated it here with the help of Processing.js.

The people are moving along a “track” of known points. All of the data was generated with the game itself, which I modified to behave like a level editor whenever needed. To capture the angle data for the little men when they crawl through a tunnel, I turned the canvas into a sample board which measured the Y mouse coordinate while the man was traversing the cave. The mouse position corresponded to an angle between 0 and 90 degrees. A little dumb but I had fun with it. :).

Here is the source.
