New on ExposingTheInvisible.org, a new series of case studies, interviews and tools that explore the capacity of metadata to protect, investigate and expose abuses of power.
The series includes:
- Smari McCarthy on how metadata can be both our best friend and our worst enemy.
- Harlo Holmes on e-evidence used in courts, the cyberfeminist group Deep Lab and how she became interested in metadata.
- Investigating Instagr.am - a closer look at image metadata and how it can be used to expose abuses of power.
- Michael Kreil on the de-anonymisation of data, metadata analysis and why metadata might be the wrong word to use.
- How to retrieve geo-location data from images
- Review of CameraV, a verification app created by The Guardian Project and WITNESS.
