I've just found this funny tool developed by the Department of Design and Image of the University of Barcelona, Faculty of Fine Arts, that allows you to type short texts with live links to Google Maps that are landscape glyphs. "This online app composes alphabetical glyphs found via Google Maps in order to satisfy our wild and atavic instinct to write text for & ever", they assure. They simply call it Typewriter Machine.
You can even try and fetch alphabetical shapes in the maps: Add new geoglyphs.
See above the message that the machine has composed for me.
