          We describe the process of developing worth maps from field research and initial design sketches for a digital Family Archive, which resulted in a more simple and flexible worth map format. Worth maps support designing as connecting by forming explicit associations between designs and human values. Two supporting worth-centred design resources were developed: one to organize field materials (a worth board) and another to simplify worth map structure ( user experience frames). During this process, we identified and refined a range of design elements and relevant human values for initial conceptual exploration of an innovative table top computer application. We end with an evaluation of the process and outcomes, complemented with insights from subsequent applications of worth maps that support recommendations on worth mapping practices. The resulting worth maps and associated resources were (and still remain) valuable, but experiences during this and other uses indicate that further improvements are needed.
