Cipher

Hidden in this image is a word or phrase. What is it?

Hint #1:

Almost all of the intersections and all of the dots are on a certain lattice. This lattice is important.

Hint #2:

The lattice is 5x15. Its columns correspond to letters.

  • $\begingroup$ If it's a phrase, does each "part" of the picture mean a different word? $\endgroup$ – Doge Aug 11 '15 at 13:21
  • $\begingroup$ @Doge I'll start giving hints if nobody gets it for a while, but not yet. $\endgroup$ – isaacg Aug 11 '15 at 13:43

  • $\begingroup$ Anyone: What (free?) software can I use to rotate the 3 pics around their respective dots? $\endgroup$ – JLee Aug 11 '15 at 14:45
  • $\begingroup$ (Thanks Google) You can use LunaPic: www181.lunapic.com/editor/?action=rotate. It's an online image editor. Download the above picture and cut it into 3 parts with the dots at the center, then use LunaPic to rotate them. $\endgroup$ – Doge Aug 11 '15 at 14:57

It's

CONGRATULATIONS.

Explanation:

Wherever there's a mark on a lattice point (either dot or corner/intersection/line), it's interpreted as a 1; where there isn't, it's interpreted as a 0. Read down the columns to get 5-bit binary, then convert to letters (A is 1, B is 2) to get the answer.
