Why a map?
A community walk map can give a sense of place and timing to the tour as the group travels. It can give context to the discussions and draw the talking together with the location, which can help 'recreate' the experience afterwards (when we all go home exhausted and full of vision!)...presenting the open conference to the wider 'interactive audience'.
So, over to you - what will our map(s) capture? What will they (re)present the tour?

Managing the Community Walk
Bee started with some good questions about how we can use it to get the most out of it for the tour. I've reposted her points here plus a couple more:
one special colour of pin for type event (conference, ideas by the watercooler, entertainment, conversations, travelling, etc)
each one of us can have our own private map
which we could link to the mastermap, with our own perspectives, photos, etc
use the 'start a path' feature to map the tour in progress (on master map)
encourage others to use the 'comments' feature on markers/entries to capture the responses, further questions, ideas, etc
