GIS in developing countries

I think it's great to see technology helping developing countries: BBC News reports: Satellite mapping fights corruption:

Digital maps of Bangladesh are proving invaluable in the fight against sleaze in a country branded as one of the most corrupt in the world. The maps are used together with a computerised national database to decide where new roads or schools should be built. The aim is to ensure that tough decisions about development priorities and spending are governed by local needs rather than the whim of politicians. [...]

GIS uses information that is stored on databases and places it on a map, making it clear to read and understand. [...]

"Roads must connect the growth centres or local markets, not just a politician's house"
