The Dark Knight & Spatial Data Collection Ettiquette
Finally saw The Dark Knight the other evening. There’s an interesting part of the movie where Batman finds a way to turn every cell phone in Gotham into a sonar 3D data collector. While I don’t expect that to happen any time soon, cell phones are in fact capable of collecting massive amounts of spatial data without users realizing it. Lucius believes no one should have that much data, but agrees to use it – just this once – to help catch a really bad guy.
