Surveillance Camera Mapping Picnic moved to August 26th


In light of the horrific events in Charlottesville and the upcoming rallies on Boston Common, we are moving our surveillance camera mapping picnic to Saturday, August 26th.

We hope you all will join us then for a fun time talking with other Pirates and identifying where the downtown Boston’s surveillance cameras are.

We will meet near the Visitor Center on Boston Common (139 Tremont St) starting at 11am.

The schedule is:

  • 11am-noon: food and training;
  • noon-2:00pm: map cameras;
  • 2:00pm-3:00pm: come back and debrief.

We would appreciate it if you told us you will be there.

We will show you how to map cameras using Open Street Map (OSM) software on your smart phone or on a paper map for later entry into OSM. We have tested some mobile phone OSM software and will provide How To guides. If you want to help with testing the apps or writing the How To guides, please contact us.

We setup a PiratePad to share what people are bringing for food, drinks and other items. If you can bring things or help out, please update it with what you can do.

We plan to have these events in other cities before the Winter comes, so contact us if you want to set one up in your community. To find out where people have mapped cameras so far, check out cctv.masspirates.org.

Looking forward to seeing you on the 26th!
