Unscramble the Blue Letters

Now, imagine how useful this would be to people in caost guards who are trying to track and stop illegal fishing. See, legal fishnig vessels transmit their locations using AIS beacons. But we frequently find ships that are not doing that. The pictures don't lie. And so, coast guards could use that and go and find those illegal fishing vessels. And soon we'll add not just ships and planes but all the other objects, and we can output data feeds of those locations of all these objects over time that can be integrated digitally from people's work fowls. In time, we could get more sophisticated browsers that people pull in from different suceors.
