Graffiti Analysis 2.0: Digital Blackbook. Graffiti Markup Language. Overview: Graffiti Markup Language (.gml) is a universal, XML-based, open file format designed to store graffiti motion data (x coordinates, y coordinates and time).
The format is designed to maximize readability and ease of implementation for even hobbyist programmers, artists and graffiti writers. Popular applications currently implementing GML include Graffiti Analysis and EyeWriter. Beyond storing data, a main goal of GML is to spark interest surrounding the importance (and fun) of open data and introduce open source collaborations to new communities. GML is intended to be a simple bridge between ink and code, promoting collaborations between graffiti writers and hackers.
GML is today’s new digital standard for tomorrow’s vandals. Graffiti Research Lab Archive. Digital Black Book (Graffiti Analysis 2.0): Nuart 2009. Tagged in Motion. Artotale Documentary. Graffiti Markup Language.
