    12 The data and all reporting is owned by the sender.Permission to track, edit, delete or escalate at will is owned by the Sender. This is exactly opposite the typical direction of civic information. The feedback mechanisms and display ought to show every communication and reference associated with the published Need, until resolution. The 'Need' is an entity with a location, representing a resource's presence or lack, with a description (text, audio, photo, video).

    14 The cultural connotation of 'Need' that makes most sense and fits the intention can be a variable. The Need has input, feedback, performance metrics and satisfaction data discoverable in the transaction logs. As an entity, it is able to broadcast requests, set virtual 'beacons' to repeat distress signal messages until response. Other actions would be set for when 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. As a Need is echoed by others, it gains in 'reputability' and rises among the 'community view'. The decision of 'where' to send the Need is made by the Sender based upon a dashboard of respondents. Much like an inventory and ordering process. There is a cultural limitation (Some call a colonial attitude) that 'people can't be trusted' but disasters prove otherwise. Individuals in crisis can be presented with a set of tangible options. Also a view of what others naearby are asking for. Joining their 'request' has some advantages in some scenarios.

    1616Why would they participate? Simple efficiency. Knowing a need or cluster of similar Needs is a solution to many logistics headaches that plague aid delivery. A list of predetermined needs and details creates efficiencies all they way up the supply chain. Predictive inputs would work in this case because it is citizens directly expressing their priorities to neighbors and forwarding to governance as needed. Not responding would be immediately known to all of the individuals in the system who are now stakeholders. Crowdmapping data flow is typically from: public to: a select group of public, all hoping that decision makers get to see it. The preferred flow is from citizens to one another and then to regional representation or agency or ngo as needed, to restore normalcy. Letting citizens decide from what's available introduces self-efficacy into traumatic events and improves psychosocial outcomes. "This is how I want to rebuild:" ought to be possible for every disaster survivor to be able to say.
