This paper presents a framework and process for a visual language that is developing as a systemic
visual method, and to integrate and outline aspects of this synthetic map formulation as the
“synthesis map” both with reference to contributing authors, but also as a comparison to design
principles and the method of visual design language. In this way the technique’s purpose as an
emergent and creative tool ‐ method can be illustrated, in contrast to the approaches of
infographics, and other visual map making associated with design ideation, and design schema
representation. Synthesis maps integrate evidence and expertise in a visual narrative for
knowledge translation and communication
