Orbital Camera Voting

Satellites provide images the size of of desktop PC to a car roof or tinier, When people vote they just show a visual object, the object has LEDS so they customize the color of their vote thus each person is able to confirm or deny the accuracy of their recorded vote

  [vote for,

Orbital cameras view objects the size of a desktop PC to tinier than a car roof. When people vote they just put a graphic image out then let the cameras record their preference. All concerned process the image data as they like with multiple satellites from different countires providing images. Voters use LEDS to change the color of their voting visual so that only they know their vote code plus they are able to confirm or deny the claimed accuracy of any countries satellite imagery.

I originally thought of this idea as a way developing nations could put Give us money we will use it to (activity) messages. Then givers as well as givers computers could simply view the visual activity of people that wanted food or water to guide their giving strategy as well as record any beneficial effects of types of giving

Rather than giving to organizations givers give to visual areas then they actually detect progress; Unicef is making an effort yet Geotagged Cambodia has famine relief from the perspective of the people putting out the send money messages.

       actually cargo cult cultural rescue could be beneficial about a third of Cambodias population died from genocide; the people of earth may have done something about that criminal government if people had the opportunity to put up rescue messages

       Manchunians wouldn't vote for this. Well, they might, but you'd never know.

       I don't get it.   

       Are you suggesting people vote by putting a particular picture, roughly the size of a car roof, somewhere outside? And then a satellite counts them via a Google Earth-type survey? Seems rather open to abuse, especially by people with, for example, colour photocopiers and roof access to warehouses. How do you propose to deal with this?
