Police may soon be able to use a new automated graffiti identification software to help them keep tabs on gang territory and drug deals.
The system will be able to compare photos of graffiti to identify which gang, and sometimes even which individual, created it. Identification will be based up on constant key points in the design and will use crowdsourcing to help decipher unintelligible text.
An accuracy rate is supposed to be about 65 percent and higher.
