Yes, I think so.

In short term, we need a map for Earthquake.
Printable version of the following map would be preferable for the
poeple on the ground.
They need emergency shelter (hot_camp_site) map for example.
Refugees are living thousands of shelters and it will take long time
for reconstruction.

In long term, thematically categorized POI map would be better which
one can select POIs to print by category.
