Geospatial Analyst Goes Rogue with Street Signs About Drones in NYC

by Matt Ball on January 27, 2012

There’s an interesting story today in Forbes about hoax signs placed in the streets of New York by an unnamed geospatial analyst. The signs warn, “ATTENTION: Drone Activity in Progress,” and “ATTENTION: Local Statute Enforced by Drone.” The perpetrator is an Iraq veteran who has grown concerned about the use of drones for domestic purposes.

The signs seem to have drawn little attention so far, but they’re certain to raise awareness. In all, 11 signs have been posted that have targeted trendy and hipster-friendly areas, with hopes that an uproar will limit drone usage.
