The membermap facility pioneered at civicmaps.org? permits people to voluntarily disclose their locations - beginning with their static home address?. Eventually GIS? and other geolocation? will permit tracking of people's movements, and coordinate this with their social networks. This is very useful in power network formation and maintenance - see candidate portal and party portal?.

For instance, a candidate's public appearance?s can be mapped? to direct people to breaking events, e.g. an all-candidates meeting?, a rival candidate's appearance in public.

The facility is well-integrated into drupal already and may soon be supported in mediawiki and/or tikiwiki.
