[Talk-us] Strange synthentic GPS tracks spelling out words

We had a super-cool mapping party in Portland, OR this weekend. But I
noticed some really werid GPS traces. Somebody has spelled out things
like "ATM" and "SUSHILAND" in the GPS tracks, and they weren't walking
around spelling things. ;)
Take a look around 45.524613, -122.694281.
I'm just curious who uploaded these. They seem pretty harmless and
kinda funny, but I wonder why someone would go to this trouble. Or did
someone's GPS automatically translate waypoints into these things? Any
