A knowledge map is a form of defining and identifying the knowledge sources in an organization. Usually these are guides in some graphic or stylized form, setting out the knowledge base sources like a flow chart or organizational chart. Sources may be internal or external, or in some cases social. This process may relate to studies of organizational knowledge management, also include identifying areas of knowledge which are accessible externally, like internet security, or areas where knowledge is not accessible within the organization.
Examples of Knowledge Map:
Flow charts targeting information sources.
Graphic design, stylized representation of sources.
Graphs, using interlinked elements
