For disaster or emergency management situations, personnel need to be able to know where UAV's are flying in real time. Staff many times are manning a EOC and viewing webmaps\dashboards up on a screen and need as much situational awareness as possible. Also, being able to track and display a UAV's position is also helpful in the field to equip visual observers with additional intel on the drone's position on a mobile device.
Obviously, it would be nice for not only drone position to be "beamed back" to headquarters, but the actual video or pictures being captured too. This obviously requires strong internet connection (and more than likely video compression), but if present, is completely possible in this day and age.
