  • Zip codes. This makes the precision of the map much more accurate. However the implementation still needs to be worked out.
  • Flag collisions. How do we represent multiple flags at the same x and y coordinate.
  • Obtaining test data.
in conclusion
In Conclusion…
  • A centralized source, accessible from any internet enabled device.
  • No duplicated information
