As for medical emergencies, from what I understand the most common problems for EMT isn't finding the building, it's getting access or navigating inside. 100+ unit apartment blocks with only stairs and nil information on the mailboxes are more of a danger to coronary victims than faulty GPS
It's funny that you mentioned "Less than a hundred years ago you could be shot just for stepping on another's piece of land." I used to live in Texas and when I originally read about Google photo vans, my first thought was "Wait until they try that in Houston!" Between dad's 30.06, mom's .22 pistol and the kid's squirrel rifle, those vans are going to be well-ventilated.

Sounds like you could use alot more meta data on the roadmaps than is usually provided by the most common mapping systems. Things like width and height restrictions for buses and such. Truckers in the states have various proprietary devices and software that provide information like that, as well as weight restrictions, traffic data and even local information. I can't find the article, but I was reading somewhere a trucker likened it to the hobo code. A hobo code for cities, urban metadata tags that give more specialized information.
I'm parsing that you're in the UK, what kind of mapping software do you use on the job? The one that cocked out on you.
Even more impressive is "Automatic Architecture" which takes data from city models and automatically creates textured 3d models.
