My first exploration of open hydrography data to create generative tokens.

The code generates a pattern from one of the 12444 features found in a geoJSON file that contains the geographic information of the rivers of Colombia. For each digit of the latitude and longitude coordinates, a random symbol is drawn using the Unicode font. The array of digits is constantly offsetting, making it a constant and never ending loop.

Controls include:
- 'Space bar' to pause or play the animation.
- 'a' and 's' to switch between 'auto' and 'smooth' scroll. (Smooth option currently not working in Chrome)

I wanted to link the project with initiatives around the world that try to make a positive impact. In this opportunity I'll donate 25% of the sales to the OpenStreetMap Foundation. Without the effort of people that nourish OSM, this process wouldn't be possible in the first place.
