SAY Media. Crowdflow.net. Crowdflow started in April 2011 after it was revealed that iPhones collect and store their location data.
We have since collected and analyzed the log files of almost 1.500 iPhones and iPads and created an open database of wifi and cell networks. We also visualized how these networks are distributed all over the world. How Crowdflow started After the tracking and collection of location data was revealed, Michael Kreil used the data stored in his iPhone and created the first heatmap. He then created a second heatmap with the information from the consolidated.db-files Bastian Greshake published. So on a sunday evening in April the idea of Crowdflow was born.
On the 4th of May Apple released the iOS Update 4.3.3 that prevents the backup of log files to the hard drive. How Crowdflow works Owners of iPhones were asked to anonymously donate their location data. From the log files, we created an open database of known wifi and cell networks (which, in turn, are not necessarily open).
