IFSEC Global: New research on CCTV camera prevalence in cities uses Google street view

IFSEC Global: New research on CCTV camera prevalence in cities uses Google street view . “Do you know how many CCTV cameras there are there in London, or in other major cities around the world? While there have been attempts to estimate these numbers, systematic surveys of camera density are hard to come by. While some studies have sought to estimate the number of CCTV cameras installed in a city, only a few have identified their precise locations. In an innovative study, researchers at Stanford University in California have used Google street view images and computer vision algorithms to count the number and density of cameras in 10 major US cities and six other large cities around the world.”
