Just the facts ... will lead to questions

I believe that Google Maps, containing geocoded UN data, would alone be sufficient to improve the public discourse.

Take poverty ... no matter what you think is the cause of poverty, you'll be surprised by its geographic distribution, especially relative to wealth & modern industry. The data will lead you to ask questions about causes, effects, trends, etc.

That's all I ask. I want hard data to stare back at people, when they look at maps.
