Almost everything you’ve ever seen in business that calls itself a map is instead a graph:- mind maps are mind graphs, business process maps are business process graphs, etc. What gives space meaning is the anchor (i.e. the compass or, in our maps, the user) combined with the position of pieces (i.e. this is west or east of this, or in our maps that this is higher up the value chain than that) and consistency of movement (i.e. north is north or in our maps, this is more evolved than that).
