These listings are brief descriptions of projects we have not researched but that may be of interest to others in the technology for transparency field.
By tracking the location of the Tunisian presidential plane and comparing it to the location of the Tunisian president, a blogger was able to uncover gross misuse of state funds.
The president's wife was using the plane for shopping trips to Europe. Using Google Earth, YouTube and photos of the plane around Europe, this blogger made a video of the flight path and used it to uncover corruption.
