Coming from the success of its BusTime tracking program and perhaps bowing to pressure from widely covered protests, the city has announced the introduction of GeeseTime, a tracking system for the area’s geese population. The website went live today and can be found at:
Under wraps for some time, the new tech will allow government workers to monitor the whereabouts of the avian population in real-time. Park goers and other residents can also locate geese using iPhone and Android mobile phones as well as laptops and other devices.
A call for comment to NYC’s Department of Wildlife was not returned but an agency spokesperson said in a press release that “If this can work for buses going 30 mph then it can definitely work for a flock of geese.”
