CommunityCam Crowd-Sourced Map Gains Momentum in the Northwest
Spearheaded by VideoSurveillance.com, CommunityCam is a free crowd-sourced camera mapping tool that allows users to upload and view surveillance camera locations across the U.S. Since its release a few months ago, CommunityCam has acquired thousands of cameras in Philadelphia and the Pacific Northwest, with visible growth every day from new users around the country.
CommunityCam's primary goal is to make communities safer by providing residents and law enforcement with a map of security cameras that have been seen first-hand by map participants. CommunityCam is an excellent resource to have at your fingertips in the event of a crime, as it gives people the ability to locate nearby surveillance cameras that may have captured the incident on video.
Free to use, CommunityCam features a navigable interface with pin balloons and a scroll function to zoom in and out on camera locations. Optimized for the iPhone and iPad, users can check in on the map from virtually anywhere with secure internet access.
