Information mapping is a method of organizing categories of information and of displaying them for both learning and reference purposes. The method may be applied to the production of self-instructional books or to the organization of data bases for computer-aided instruction and reference. The report is itself written in modified information map form. The procedures and rules for information mapping were derived from educational research and technology as well as from the communications world. Preliminary work with simulated computer displays has explored the flexibility with which a system so organized can respond with a range of user options and display variations. Cost per instruction hour is competitive with that of other methods, but the method has additional advantages in its versatility and ease of updating.
