Visitors to York Maze will find this year’s amazing maize maze, even more challenging thanks to the accuracy of a KOREC-supplied Trimble TDC650 handheld GNSS. York Maze, Maze Master Tom Pearcy, has created another fantastic maze using over 1 million maize plants in an area larger than 8 Wembley football pitches, making it the largest maze in Britain and one of the biggest in the world. Over the years, Tom has tackled many themes from Star Wars to Lego and Roald Dahl to Mr Men, all using a KOREC-supplied Trimble Geo Explorer with its 0.5m accuracy. However, this year, Tom has upped the ante and opted for a handheld Trimble TDC650 (scalable positioning from meter to centimeters). The incredible result is a complex maize tribute to Tutankhamun to celebrate the 100th anniversary of his tomb being discovered. This year saw Tom cut over 5km of pathways into the 15-acre field to create the ‘iconic’ image of King Tut.
