11th August 2019 – (Hong Kong) We exposed yesterday that radical frontline protesters used a real time app to show locations of moving police, fast moving police, parked police locations, warning flags, first aid stations, supplies, areas surrounded by total number of riot police below or above 30, Special Tactical Police. Warnings of tear gas are also issued real time. Blocked roads are also shown on the real time map.
Real time information has also been integrated into GOOGLE MAP which shows geographical distribution of conflicts and location/momentum of police force. Regular updates and warnings could also be seen at the bottom of the Google map
At press time, protesters were still updating information using the Google map app on the current situation in Sham Shui Po and North Point.
