Why did we do a GIGAmap?

It gave us a way to tell the story of our complex system visually.

What is a gigamap?

A GIGAmap is a great visual tool to help stakeholders understand complex subjects. The tool incorporates multiple data sources and insights into one large visual. Think of it as a snapshot in time of a system. For those of you who are interested, you can learn more here.

How CAN we use it?

A GIGAmap can be used in a few ways:

  • Document the state of a complex system.

  • Visually share huge amounts of multi-layered complex information.

  • Spark different conversations about the system.

  • Act as a measure we can look back on as we make changes to see if we are actually improving.

*TIP: The GIGAmap is meant to be printed in a large, wall-size format. Anything small will hurt your eyes.
