Here’s a copy of the draft results (i you want edit access to the real thing, just ask… and blame the spammers for this – they’re even targetting maps now) – my other unanswered questions include whether there’s been a drop-off, rise or steady number of new maps, and how the categories lists have changed over the past few years (I’ll put the scraper for that into github).

And here, for balance, are some Esri crisis maps. Because I just downloaded their WordPress plugin, and it’s, kinda, playtime.
