It is the largest maze in Britain, and one of the largest mazes in the world so we’re delighted to report that once again York Maze has been using KOREC supplied Trimble sub-metre Geo handheld mapping technology to map out this year’s Jurassic themed attraction!
Last year Maze Master Tom Pearcy explained to us exactly how it’s done. “We’ve come a long way since our first creation in 2002. Back then our mazes were based on just lines and circles drawn onto graph paper and in the field, we used sticks and strings to set out the design, a time consuming exercise which could take two weeks or more.
Today the process is much more straightforward. Our theme is designed in a basic drawing package and then uploaded onto our Trimble Geo which provides us with the 0.5m accuracy that this type of work requires.
We then go out into the maize field and effectively create the biggest dot to dot in the world!
Using the map on the Trimble Geo, I plot out the design amongst the 6” high maize plants, marking the points as I go, whilst a cultivator follows on behind.
The accuracy and reliability of the Geo enables us to complete the work in just 3-4 days and of course reproduce much more complex designs.”
