The map shows the current region that the ClueFinders are in, and where they can travel to. The locations that appear on the map are usually where activities take place. Often times, clicking on a location on the map instantly takes the ClueFinders anywhere, but only if they have visited that location before. If a location hasn't been visited yet, it will usually appear grayed out, or not visible at all.
Sometimes, the map feature will display one map for the entirety of the game. Other times, different maps will be displayed at different points in the game, for when the ClueFinders don't need to travel back and forth between locations. The map also usually indicates what items can be collected at certain locations.

Locations within a region become visible only after they have been visited.
