GeoPolis – watching the watchdogs

Quuxlabs is releasing the alpha version of GeoPolis, a web service to gather and show the ongoing police control. More info can be found on the project website and on the Quuxlabs blog. I made some comments regarding the service accuracy, automation, security and independence but I’ll be glad to use the service once I’ll be able to drive again.

Btw, in the same topic — watching the watchdogs, my map of cameras in Liege (see announcement and update) is now located on the CCLV website. The database management is also handed over to them. Moreover Christophe Cattelain is now systematically taking photos of those cameras in Liege and he publishes them on Flickr

Mapping cameras in Liege

A lot of publicity is made around CCTV cameras in London (e.g. recently). But surveillance cameras are also invading other cities like Liege. You can be pro or against. The least thing is awareness: citizen should know where they are and how data is used. But nor the Liege city, nor the Liege police websites display a map of cameras. So I decided to create such a map here (in French). Of course, I cannot do everything by myself. If you know the location of some camera, just let me know and I will add them on the map.
