Build a map of surveillance cameras with other activists

Where are the Eyes is a tool for detecting and evading surveillance. Together, you and other users build a map of surveillance cameras to protect activists, students, and other at-risk minorities.

When run, the map will display red pins on cameras near your location. To mark a new camera, or verify that a marked camera exists, just stand near it and press the "eye" button.

The app has telemetry on by default. Press "Mapbox" button on the main screen to disable it.
