Building maps?
A quick introduction to the map building process.
In essence, building the maps involves three steps:
  1. breaking down the subject into meaningful ideas;
  2. figuring out the relationships between those ideas; and,
  3. expressing the ideas and relationships visually.

(Explorer and Hub views)

Issues (or questions) are raised, Positions (or answers) suggested in response to these Issues, and Supportive and Opposing Arguments advanced for and against the Positions (and each other).

(Zoom view)

Each building block has its own color to make it easier to see the types of ideas and relationships at a glance.

There's a wider set of building blocks beyond the three core ones, but the core set of Issues, Positions, and Supportive and Opposing Arguments can be combined and recombined many times to build rich maps on any scale.
