We all depend on our GPS devices whether it’s through Google, Apple, or other providers, but do we know how those online maps are created?
For at least Apple and Google, a small car literally drives around each neighborhood with a camera on top taking pictures and videos in real time for use later in their maps.
What if one of these drivers inadvertently takes a picture of a crime being committed unbeknownst to the driver?
This could be in a home, a park, a shopping center, a theatre, or a deserted road. For this prompt you can use the POV of the person committing the crime and finding the evidence on Google or Apple maps or you can use a different POV such as the victim or the officer investigating the crime.
What is the crime and what did the camera see? Enjoy!
