The space of real Borel measures (Formula presented.) on a metric space S under the flat norm (dual bounded Lipschitz norm), ordered by the cone (Formula presented.) of nonnegative measures, is considered from an ordered normed vector space perspective in order to apply the well-developed theory of this area. The flat norm is considered in place of the variation norm because subsets of (Formula presented.) are compact and semiflows on (Formula presented.) are continuous under much weaker conditions. In turn, the flat norm offers new challenges because (Formula presented.) is rarely complete and (Formula presented.) is only complete if S is complete. As illustrations serve the eigenvalue problem for bounded additive and order-preserving homogeneous maps on (Formula presented.) and continuous semiflows. Both topics prepare for a dynamical systems theory on (Formula presented.).
