Example of Tracking A German Politician


Recommended Posts

Back in 2009 a German Green Party politician Malte Spitz sued Deutsche Telekom for access to six months of data being collect on his use of DeutscheTelekom cell phone service. The Zeit newspaper displays the 6 months of service as the cell phone moved around Germany. When movements seem to stop, zoom down to the street view level to see movements within a city.


Green party politician Malte Spitz sued to have German telecoms giant Deutsche Telekom hand over six months of his phone data that he then made available to ZEIT ONLINE. We combined this geolocation data with information relating to his life as a politician, such as Twitter feeds, blog entries and websites, all of which is all freely available on the internet.
