NCGIA Research - Location Privacy

New and expanding spatial, mobile and context-aware technologies, coordinated spatial data infrastructures and sensor-networks are making it easy to acquire and merge information on the geographic locations and movements of individuals with potentially profound implications for personal information privacy. Location privacy concerns the protection of individual rights against unwanted tracking of their movements and collection and dissemination of such information for purposes of profiling. Research considers the potential effects on spatial technology uses and development of legal and technological approaches for the protection of personal information privacy. Professor Harlan Onsrud is a lead researcher in investigating legal and ethical implications of new information technologies.
