  46. 46. What will happen when the invisible slums are made visible? The tools for mapping these new geographies are in hand .. not centralized or a tool of authority, but empowering to all and making dialogue inevitable. Will residents see mapping as a way to exert their presence and protect themselves? Or is information vulnerability? Will authorities react negatively, seeing this as another attempt at legitimacy? Or positively, as information gathering for invasions and control? Is it possible that geographical political situations might improve if we all openly contribute to and debate within an artifact, with data, in the map?
