Hold on to what you've found: With Maps.
An important part of research is capturing your findings. One way to do that is with maps, being them visualisations of mental models, actual, geographical maps, or something completely abstract. I've always loved maps, in all of their incarnations. One of my favorite things about The Lord of the Rings was the big map of Middle-Earth at the back of all volumes. During the time, I've seen a lot of maps, and heard a lot of ideas about maps. But I've never seen something like these inuit maps. They completely blew me away.
