The role of the Gigamap is constantly developing. This process has not been an intentional
process but a process of discovery. By looking at some obvious roles of the Gigamap closer
new concepts crystallize. This working paper reports on the rethinking of the Gigamap as a
tool to design a shared picture of complex systems for systemic design intervention. The role of
the Gigamap as bridging device to detect and cover destructive ruptures in the design process
is investigated closer. Investigating the ruptures leads to understanding better the qualitative
features the maps depict and how these features can be shared. This leads in the end to a
proposal for a Sense Sharing Model
