      We need to integrate maps in mobile Apps and Web frontend to show where an event is taking place. Maps is best because of it's international availability and the google api with a feature to recursive search.

      Location, location, location. Choropleths are hot for a reason. When dealing with geography and housing why stop at bar charts, the map really makes my data quickly comprehensible to humans.
