The model is a scaled representation of 43 km of GPS tracks of methodical walks over the area round White Horse Hill in Uffington. A nine minute video documentary about the model making process was produced in June 2005. It includes animations of the GPS tracks alongside time-lapse footage of the model being constructed.

The landscape surrounding the ancient White Horse Hill was mapped with a new terrain of GPS data that captured a physical response the area.
The White Horse Hill Model refers to a history of geograms that can be traced back to the original Bronze Age chalk figures carved into the English landscape, and the Nasca Lines made in Ancient Peru. Their original shapes have eroded over time along with their intentions. They reveal signs, not entirely visible from the ground, that are projected towards the skies like symbols on a map to be seen by the gods.
