As a shift from the currently commonplace printed maps used in wayshowing systems, in this talk I will put forward a case for incorporation of digital interactive maps to assist the public not only in wayfinding but also in 'thingfinding'. I will explain why wayshowing systems should become thingshowing systems in order to provide more relevant information for those who use them.
A vision for the next generation of wayshowing systems will be presented - using the map as an interactive interface that provides access to multiple layers of information, allowing for user generated content as well as a range of other location based narratives which aren't currently being catered for.
