  18. Real-time ‘map grab’ • Colour-coded filters • ‘Centre of gravity’ clustering • Post-code/national ‘force-fields’

  19. Custom displays • Geographical – high-quality maps (just licensed ‘Maps in Minutes’) • Logical (e.g. corporate campus, ‘tower block’, etc.) • ‘Artistic’ (Mexican wave, Graffiti wall, Tetris, etc.)
