Hello Erica, thank you for this request!
I have discussed this with Quim and as you also mentioned the need for the map or visualization of the department is not urgent. We have even wondered if it's really necessary. I always ask myself when I create something what can this medium do better than another (e.g. is a diagram clearer than text? what is the tradeoff in comprehensiveness?). And while our department is also in the process of change, it's probably best to leave this dormant for now.

When/if we decide we want to work on this, the prerequisite is definitely a detailed text explanation of the structure, in my opinion.
