Mapping tool overview and scenarios up on the wiki

Yep, Dale and I worked on that scenario before the all-hands
meeting--themed tours, collecting objects, and creating/sharing custom
tours were all part of that scenario. Other designers were similarly
working on other mapping scenarios, some likewise supported by
storyboards. The ones with storyboards were presented at the all-hands
during our show-and-tell, but they can all be found here:

The current incarnation of the mapping tool overview and scenarios
drew its inspiration (directly and indirectly) from work done in our
previous scenarios, our mapping brainstorm
and our conversations with museums, especially the DIA.
