|GPS, remote sensing, evidence, privacy, empirical study|
|Since launched the first satellite in 1998, Taiwan became one of the space
club in the world. Except to the necessity of military force, scientific research and
weather prediction, using satellite remote sensing data and global position information
become more and more popular to common people, so as to the government.
Nonetheless, people who live in this Big Island seldom care about how government
used this high technology control and monitor method against to the people or for
the people. Even in academy, there is very few scholars ever expressed their comments
on this issue. After do some searches in judicial reviews, there still hardly
could find any legal principle whether the government may use satellite to monitor
or even control the people or even natural environment. Even so, the author still
tries to collect some useful verdict data to illustrate the principle and the practical
situation about the satellite surveillance in Taiwan Higher Court.
