The role of maps

In a gamified system, maps serve important functions:

  1. Orientation: Provide users with a visual representation of the game environment.
  2. Navigation: Helps players navigate the app or game.
  3. Goal Setting: Maps can be used to set goals & objectives for players. Like visiting all the locations on a map or completing challenges in specific areas.
  4. Progression: Can be used to track a player's progress through a game & provide a visual representation of their journey.
  5. Storytelling: Maps can be used to tell a story, convey information about the game world, and provide context for the player's actions.
