Wowie zowie, it's finally here, the tech infrastructure we've been waiting for to map card sequences! It is now possible to select a sequence of cards online and save it for later. Each sequence is assigned a unique URL for later viewing and editing. You can choose a default layout of 10 cards in a row, or make up your own layout within a 10 x 10 grid. You can start from someone else's layout or sequence and then modify and resave under a new name. You can even ask the site to "deal" you a random card, thus bringing Group Works tarot online. The new card-mapping program can be used to save specific sets of cards for such purposes as:
- illustrating a facilitation method
- planning out a session in order by cards
- sharing and discussing with your team
To try out the new card-mapping program, first log in on the regular site (otherwise you won't be able to save any work in the new program), and then go to this page:Card Mapping. The program includes documentation and help pages, visit the links posted there. This new program is still in "beta," so for any work you care about, we suggest making notes in hard copy or on your own system, or laying out the physical cards and taking a picture for the record.
A huge thank you to Vine, our dedicated programmer.
