The Tokyo Zoo Project-Geoglyphs!

The nav-U, a personal navigation device that can be mounted on a bicycle, started the Tokyo Zoo Project. This is a virtual zoo where the animals are drawn by cycling through the streets of Tokyo.
  You can zoom in and click the animals for route details such as this:
For more precise directions you can go to the PetaMap site.

There's also a how to page that shows how the elephant was created. This page gives you some interesting details encountered on the ride such as the line of cats along the elephant's trunk in "Cat Town;"

and along the banners of the nearby shopping street.

Thanks to Rafael from Urban Demographics for sending me this link.
