Using Location Data Responsibly: Locus Charter

by Suchith Anand

Dear colleagues, The Locus Charter proposes that wider, shared understanding of risks and solutions relating to uses of location data can improve standards of practice, and help protect individuals and the public interest. We hope the Charter can improve understanding of risk, so those can be managed, and the many benefits of geospatial technologies can be realized for individuals and societies.  Through a series of international roundtables, Benchmark initiative and EthicalGeo have now produced draft common international principles on responsible use of location data.
