    Heard in the news about a miraculous graffiti prevention technology, craftily dubbed Graffiti Tracker.

    Here's the website:

    NPR interviewed a police officer that had worked with this technology and it was "astounding" etc. It's a combination of GPS and "photograph technology" and the rest is being withheld from the public to keep anyone from figuring it out. Because of that fact, it will inevitably fail but it's still messed up.There's also the possibility that the 'system' isn't that great and someone is just trying to sell it or make it effective by talking shit.
    Does anyone know how it might work? (or is there a thread about this already?)

    you mean you can't figure that out?

    the system is GPS based. users can take pictures of graffiti and upload the pictures, including a geo-tag so it can be located on a map.
    the system probably also tracks names and crews
    the police can then see what spots of the city have more graffiti, and where specific writers or crews get up.
    they can then assign more patrols to those areas in hopes of reducing vandalism
    prosecutors can also connect individuals to more pieces, and add charges

    *stops speculating and reads the info on the website*

    yup, i'm right

    Thats not the point, there going to all the usual spots people hit up and getting patrol there.

    So the only thing to do is get the fuck up all around the city.

    They think thats gonna work? That whole plan is a flaw. That guy in the video is a toy and tagged in areas around his house. This product sucks. Graffers won't stop bombing because a satelite is watching us. o_0
