Geodetic rotational displacement drawings are four dimensional drawings scribed by the gesture of the rotation of the earth. The drawing principle is based on the concept of a worldline as described by theoretical physics. While the lines scribed by the objects are invisible in three dimensional space, in four dimensions they will extrude, solidify (although transparent) and interact with each other.
