My Shake shows my station but the location is wrong. It is in the area but shifted. Is this a privacy feature? If so why does it not show the correct location for me the owner. Checking the setting via rs.local shows the correct value.
I also noticed this. I recently moved my shake around 1 month or so ago. Weirdly the MyShake lat long appears to be incorrect for the original position too, although only a few 100metres or so away.
As you have guessed, this is a privacy feature, not a bug. We are in the midst of formalizing a policy for this, but right now all Shake locations on maps are obscured up to 1km from their actual location.
- Option will be made available on the station’s web front-end to make its precise location “public”
- Triangles on the station view page and other maps will always be wrong, as they are now
- When permission is not given, geolocation coordinates in response file will remain obfuscated, as they are now
- When permission is given, geolocation coordinates in the station’s response file will be accurate
Richard or I will be happy to answer any questions about this.
Ah I did wonder about privacy when I realised the location of my shake in Spain wasn’t quite right but perfect in the local settings.
I do have a query as why my shake is showing up in London rather than Spain in the new interface. Any ideas?
