     51Even if  not there's still heaps of opportunities:
     52 * Color coded maps according to Geo-data (threats, needs, etc)
     53 * Placing variable sized markers on the map in proportion to data (number of people in camp, number of families needing food)
     54 * Tracking people ( John Smith was registered at Camp A, then collected food at Camp B, then volunteers at Site C), or Items (The shipment of Tarpaulins moved from site C to site D, where it was split, and then half of them have been distributed from site E)
     55 * Having a playable timeline slider (like [http://haiti.ushahidi.com/main])
     56=== Appeal ===
     57 * Maps are where it's at
