... • To what extent could more precise geotargeted alerts and warnings reduce mortality, morbidity, human suffering, and other costs associated with disasters? • How can better communication of locations at risk and appropriate protective actions for each location help reduce delay in recipients' taking protective actions, for example, because less time is spent seeking additional or confirming information or milling?
From page 36...
... Open research questions regarding the display and presentation of geotargeted information include the following: • How would using multiple approaches to communicate geotargeted alerts and warnings enhance personalization of risk and subsequent public protective action response? What combinations of text and maps would best motivate recipients to take protective action?
From page 37...
... • As recipients receive messages on their various computing and mobile devices, they may wish to forward those messages to others via text or email or to social media sites. Additionally, they may want to simply link to additional information.

... ? • What is the likelihood that concerns about negative public relations or apprehensiveness regarding government regulation will discourage developers from incorporating geolocation information into emerging technologies?
