Marcus Lindemann and his team have worked with hidden cameras in various settings since the year 2000, and from there they started playing with other gadgets. While their first GPS tracking project on bike theft failed completely (the bike was gone with all the gadgets and only a video of the theft was kept), they later used GPS tracking for a consumer story on parcel services to show why some parcels were not delivered.

To monitor price changes at petrol stations, his team bought and installed time lapse camera, but before the workflow had been established, monitoring fuel prices became much easier. However, once those cameras were there, they came in handy with another story... 

Currently they are working on a long-term project using newer and cheaper GPS tools. Marcus will present the tools and video footage in this session.

Note: Data Labs have 38 seats with computers. These workshops may reach capacity quickly, so we recommend you arrive early.
