Spatial elements Figure 2: The classification system for an ordered version of situational maps [15] According to CLARKE, these ordered maps are tools to keep a general conspectus over the elements; it is not meant to overcome the messiness, but is instead used for practical reasons. However, while engaging in this analytical exercise, the ontological different elements are sorted into a conservative classification system. Figure 2 and 3 are examples from her research. Instead of asking what nurses had to say, one should think on how nurses are being re- constructed in that situation, by whom and, conversely, how nurses alter or stabilize other elements.
