About Spot the Surveillance

The project is informed by years of research compiled by EFF through its Street-Level Surveillance project, which aims to shine a light on how police use (and abuse) technology to spy on communities. [8]

EFF’s engineering and design team combined the open-source coding language A-Frame with 360-degree photography to create this project, which is shareable under the Creative Commons Attribution license. The project was supported during its development through the XRstudio[10] residency program at Mozilla.[9]
