How do you use maps? Are they simply deliverables--a construct for your output--or do you use them for other purposes too? In this talk, we'll talk about all that maps have to offer. We'll talk about the debate over inline linking vs the reltable. We'll talk about maps that help you organize your workflow and review process. We'll talk about fall-back behavior, key definition maps, and OEM documentation. We'll share stories, hopes, and heartbreaks, and I hope to convince you that maps are so much more than you originally thought!
