Using a large-scale ‘Wacom’ tablet and mac laptop we can create either ‘live’ on-the-spot digital maps, or work off-site with clients to collaboratively produced custom images. As a consultation or collaboration method, the laptop/tablet can be plugged directly into a large screen and the participants collectively create their map on-screen – a powerful and impactful meetings and events tool.
Digital maps combine the energy of a freehand drawing with a digital output. Its a highly flexibility format as typeset copy and images can easily be embedded within the final map – enabling different language versions to be created.
Digital mapping is a really effective way to capture meetings, create strategic plans or capture major events such as conferences and keynote speeches. They’re also ideal social media ‘currency’ as they can be created at low resolution, making it simple to design a themed map and upload onto your website, tweet, email or use in presentations.
These maps were created for the Social Media Influence 2011 Conference, the third year we’ve attended, some great cutting edge presentations and content again.
