Dear Jo,

In the discussion of the 'open knowledge' funds I gave a set of examples 
  of 'Tools Wanted', one of which I described as:

> ### Rendering of geo locations using **open data** ###

I wondered whether you -- or anyone else or anyone else on list -- know 
of already existent tools/projects which already do this?

I would emphasize that the maps would **not** have to be very high 
resolution (the first use case for this would be something like plotting 
historical events).
