defining feature is the integration of a visual geographical map interface.
with an inexhaustive range of data.
The user interacts with the map
""The position of an 'entity' is plotted on the map (using GPS, manual positioning or co-ordinate information), with latitude, longitude and altitude displayed within the map window - captured and stored in the database within the records for that marker, including time/date stamps.""
and assigns the relevant information to a location marker.
The human brain is very different from a computer. Where a computer works in linear fashion, the brain works using association - comparing, integrating, synthesising, as it goes.
Association plays a dominant role in nearly every mental function. The real challenge
is being able to make sense of, and efficiently summarise the persistent flow of information we receive.
