[Geowanking] looking for paper and domain suggestions

Mapping risks, especially health and safety risks is a promising new
domain for both public health, for planning public services, business
locations and logistics, crime prevention, and even automotive safety.
conversely, mapping especially healthy and safe areas might also be
interesting and useful for e.g health tourism, sports and fitness, and
choosing places to live.
If you decide to explore these topics, please let me know. I'm
particularly interested on how this kind of data might be processed,
rendered and used.
