Gee! Geo-mapping

Here are three funky World Bank sites which use Google Maps and other mapping software to show information in new ways:
For me these are more 'proof of concept' than finished products. They operate more as front-ends to the World Bank's databases than portals through which users can view, understand and (most importantly) interact with the information. Still, they're a great start.

The question is, when are international NGOs going to take advantage of the opportunities afforded by this sort of technology?
