In a gamified system, maps serve important functions:
A good map has to map the environment in the mind of the user, not to faithfully represent the terrain. The map is not the territory.
When the map does not match the territory (or the environment), users get lost. They usually quit the game.
In games maps can be made of:
Path - a route that players can follow. In 3D games it can literally be a road.
Landmark - usually fixed, recognisable elements that act as reference points helping players orienting themselves.
District - used to divide a large game world into smaller, more manageable regions.
Edge - they have to separate or break the world continuity. Gates, Walls etc. They can mark the end of the world or be used to transition to new areas.
Node - a hub that can be used to access multiple locations. A plaza, intersection etc. Usually placed between districts.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
