    v11 v12  
    3636    * http://docs.geoserver.org/stable/en/user/googleearth/index.html
    3737   * [http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Mod_mapnik_wms mod_mapnik_wms] to create the WMS
    38    
     38 * [http://depiction.com Depiction]
     39  * Data primarily only shareable with other Depiction users which means hard to gain traction even within an organisation let alone for interagency work.
     40  * Installation requires admin rights on the PC, which many field staff won't easily have access to - again lowering the ability to get wider adoption.
     41  * Can't create new Depictions or use BaseMaps at all without an active Internet connection.
     42  * Revealers seem very gimmicky: I don't find them useful & they're really hard to use in practise (I just wanted a 'full-screen option').
     43   * GeoExplorer already has the ability to dynamically edit layer opacity, which is the 1 thing I'd use them for.
     44  * Licensing costs push this beyond local partners to whom we want to handover the tools when moving from Response -> Recovery -> Mitigation/Preparedness (USD 200/machine + add-ons, such as $50 just for icons that come free with Sahana!)
     45  * No support for KML (or GeoRSS)
     46  * No ability to edit the OpenStreetMap base layer which adds so much value to these maps
     47  * Adding Elevation data is clumsy (fairly easy to make this 'seamless' ;) )
