  17. Why did the evolution 
in digital maps occur?!
  18. Cultural force!   Peopleʼs increasing participation in – and shaping of – choices and outcomes!   A growing interest in self-measurement !   Place, time and progress reference points!   Rise in gamification!
  19. Technology force!   Hardware!   Became ubiquitous; Mooreʼs Law holds; Computers become faster, cheaper, smaller!   Data!   Cheaper storage; Tools to create data; Explosion of geographic and relational data creates opportunities for innovation!   Access!   Birth of networking and openness of standards gives everyone access to data to use as they please!
