i-See

Wednesday 31 July 2002

The Institute for Applied Autonomy has developed i-See:

a web-based application charting the locations of closed-circuit television (CCTV) surveillance cameras in urban environments. With i-See, users can find routes that avoid these cameras — paths of least surveillance — allowing them to walk around their cities without fear of being “caught on tape” by unregulated security monitors.

i-See displays a map showing the locations of surveillance cameras. You can scroll and zoom the map to find your area of interest. Click on your starting point, then on your destination. i-See will generate the safest ‘path of least surveillance’ between these two places. (It won’t work with Netscape v4.7.7 and earlier).

The demo website uses a map of New York, with camera data supplied by the New York Surveillance Camera Project and the New York Civil Liberties Union.
