DescriptionAftenposten first reported on signs of mobile surveillance in Oslo in December 2014. A few months later, an investigation held by the National Police Security Services concluded that the signs of surveillance had “natural explanations”. Following this, Aftenposten decided to ask external experts for forensic reports and dig even deeper in the data. From the expert company Delma, we received a richer database of around 42.000 records. We carefully analyzed the data through advanced SQL-queries, identified records that deviated from normal mobile behaviour, plotted findings on maps, and presented the results to experts. The result was a second round of stories where technical issues were central. Explaining these findings to our readers were challenging. We decided to carefully analyze the investigation the Police Security Services, and confront each of their findings with our data. The resulting article is a rich and visual article: http://mm.aftenposten.no/2015/her-gikk-mobilalarmene-i-oslo/ Simplified English version: www.aftenposten.no/8071885.ece
