    2929     - Due to rise in role of mobile phones for incident reporting, there can be alternative intuitive template of the form for mobile phones. The user should have a way to report incident while he/she is on the move. Camera and GPS can be accessed using a browser and this will increase the accountability of the data.
    3030     - When user is filling the incident for a particular location, recent reports for that location will be displayed on the side. User can select those ones which are reports for the same incident. Initially these connections can be just stored, and after analyzing them we can develop a module which clusters such incidents based on these connections. Research papers on topics like "Crisis Map Mash-ups" and "Emergence of Neogeographic practices for incident reporting" have mentioned the problems current crisis mapping tools face is inability to remove duplicate data. Most tools use number of incoming reports as a measure of incident seriousness, but that is not proving to be effective. This feature will help us in solving this problem.
