I recently, well last year, reported new cameras in Northern Cyprus, however so far I have not heard anything about them being checked, is this normal?

I was hoping to get my subscription extended but am I wasting my time sending on these reports, any useful advice appreciated.

I suspect the only way of checking its a valid report is to wait until it shows in Google Earth, most of the manual verification only happens in the UK, so it could take a while to verify a reported camera in northern Cyprus.

See this http://www.pocketgpsworld.com/verifier-day-in-life-of-a1036.php for the verification process.

Unless MaFt gives it a BOD status.

Just thinking out loud .......

If a camera is reported and a qualifying photo provided would that help the BOD status ?

UK or wherever

I know not everyone will have the opportunity to take or provide a photo but it would help.

Yes, it would. Photos can be emailed to cameras@pocketgpsworld.com (with the camera ID somewhere in the subject). These will be matched against streetview etc to make sure it's the same location. It's not foolproof but if streetview form 2015 shows no camera but a photo from 2017 shows the same layout, buildings, signs, shops etc but with a camera then there's a high chance that there is a new camera there now Smile Most of the Streetview imagery for Cyprus is from 2014...
