     2=== The Missing Piece ===
    34With very little cooperation from existing infrastructure we stand on the verge of comfortably receiving an input stream comprised of each individual's needs wherever disaster occurs. Such a system should cost nothing to the end user because it actually saves significant sums in wasted effort and wrong guesses. Early warning alone could mean regime change.
    910The data and all reporting is owned by the sender. To track, edit, delete or escalate at will. The feedback mechanisms and display ought to show every communication and reference associated with that need, until resolution. The need is able to broadcast requests, set virtual 'beacons' to repeat distress signal messages until the phone battery dies. Perhaps a very low power drain sequence of bursts. I should know the status of those nearby so that I can offer or request help. This again, though, happens peer to peer rather than from a government or agency looking down.
     12Whomever has any decision authority is running the show post-disaster. Accordingly, if a  few agencies display similar items in their warehouses it ought to be up to the Sender to decide which aid, from whom and how the aid is delivered. In this way reviews of past experiences can be collected and aid received from entities who prove themselves worth working with.
     14Putting the onus then, on agencies to coordinate their own distribution system and governments to streamline the process of delivery. Assessment and categorization would have already been accomplished by the Senders and verified by a third party.
     16Each successively complex layer of technology, tablets desktops etc. would be putting compute resources to rendering larger swaths of 3D and performing file conversion as needed.
     18An intuitive interface with drag and drop filenames using mathematical operators between layers would enable complex ideas to be conveyed without any number analysis. The window title becomes the names of the layers themselves and the operator state should be retained in the file itself. The collection of imagery URL's vector files, operators and filters could be called a "Perspective" and could be editable in applications like QGis just by inflating the contained layer files.
