Information Mapping

Information Mapping is a research-based method used to analyze, organize, and present information based on your audience’s needs and purpose of the information. The method solves many  of the typical challenges faced by writers and readers of business documents and business communication.

  • The information is complex or technical
  • Critical ideas are hard to find
  • The information is difficult to organize
  • Too much or too little detail is provided

Information Mapping provides guidelines for organizing and presenting information effectively to promote reader access and comprehension.
