The aim of this chapter is to highlight and problematise the surveillance dynamics inherent in the contemporary proliferation of new spatial media. In addressing this problematic, the chapter is structured into two main parts. The first section provides a broad outline of the surveillance potential – and functioning through surveillance – of spatial media. We also discuss the key issues arising from the increasing digitisation and interconnection of various forms of new spatial media/spatialised data collection and analysis, and we critically assess the roles and positions of two key stakeholders connected with these issues: the individual user of spatial media, and the technical experts involved in coding everyday life into software. The second section of the chapter then focuses on three main aspects that characterise the surveillance dynamics implied by new spatial media: personalisation, interconnection and anticipation. The chapter’s conclusion argues for further analysis and conceptualisation of the increasing flexibility of contemporary governing through code with respect to new spatial media.
