Sensitive geographic data are invaluable assets for the people to whom they belong and their disclosure should be decided by the sovereign data owner (SDO). Due to several high- profile data breaches and business models that commercialise user data, the need for new approaches to geoprivacy and data sovereignty has grown. This paper proposes the client web application MapSafe as an effective tool and an outlines an approach that places geoprivacy under data guardians’ control.
