Emergent Futures Mapping with Futurescaper
Futurescaper is an online tool for making sense of the drivers, trends and forces that will shape the future. As a user interface system, it still needs development. As a tool for analyzing and understanding complex systems, it works very well and does something I have yet to see anything else be able to do. Several people asked me about this after my last post, so here is some more detail. Following the logic of collective intelligence (as part of my my PhD), I broke up the the scenario thinking process into discrete chunks, came up with a system for analyzing and relating them together, and then distilled them into key outputs for helping the scenario development process. Emergent Thematic Maps One of the coolest things about Futurescaper is how it translates simple input into complex analysis, and then back again into simple insights. To demonstrate this, I tested the system using data from an International Futures Forum project on international climate change impacts for UK Foresight.
