Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: Access to SCP-map is possible only through a submerged underground tunnel complex with the entry point in the underwater wing of Site-169.
Site-169 was built on the island ████████ for the purpose of researching and containing SCP-MAP.
SCP-Map itself poses no threat and is easily contained within its cave under the island ████████. Because of the nature of SCP-map, RTF-Nu-13 "Walkers" are to be present near the anomaly at all times.

Nu-13 are ordered to neutralize uncooperative entities that appear as a result of the anomalous properties of SCP-Map. Entities showing friendly intentions and willingness to cooperate are to be taken to Site-169 to be interviewed. Interviewed entities are to be taken to custody and used as a ground for future diplomatic missions performed by Nu-13. Entities bearing provisional clearance codes, as distributed by Nu-13 during exploration missions, are permitted access to documents corresponding to their clearance level.
Nu-13 are to observe patterns made by SCP-Map and report any unusual activity.

Description: SCP-Map is a structure of 13 stone pillars 2,6 meters high and 0,65 meters in circumference. Each pillar is covered in the same set of symbols of unknown language. SCP-map's cave is populated by floating orange spheres estimated to be 1 centimeter in diameter1, while its ceiling is covered in fourteen large groups of black circles each measuring 3 cm in diameter.2

If any living being touches the symbols, anomalous properties of SCP-Map activate. Orange lights then group together to form up a series of spheres classified as SCP-Map-01. Each instance of SCP-01 appears as a small sphere 5 cm in diameter, made of unknown transparent material and with gas inside. The coloring of gas inside spheres is unique for each sphere and show up the unique identity of the sphere. All instances of SCP-01 and their representative connections form the same pattern upon activation.

On 10.12.2017 during research with symbols earlier confirmed safe with experiment SCP-MAP-EX1, Junior Researcher Nicolas Wane misinterpreted one of safe symbols, resulting in his disappearance. Following his disappearance, small bright red light emerged from SCP-01, located near edge of the pattern, to one connected instance. On the same moment, another instances of SCP-01 dispatched differently colored lights to other SCP-01 connected to them. After this exchange of lights ended, an unknown humanoid was formed by orange lights next to one of the pillars, claiming to be Dr. Richard Newmon. Dr. Newmon was able to successfully name several on-site working personnel and presented himself with security credentials belonging to Nicolas Wane. See incident log I and Interview log I for details.

Later expedition to place where Junior Researcher Nicolas Wane received his injuries ended up with recovery of clean humanoid skeleton with implanted mechanical third eye and several storage chips. Standard Foundation decryption process revealed that this unknown implant was able to record memories, thoughts,video and audio feeds. All those information were stored in the storage chips on the skull of recovered skeleton. Through recovered data, the origin of recovered skeleton was identified to be the represented by the SCP-MAp-169 with black colored gas, located in center of pattern.
Last thoughts recorded on the storage chips implied the unknown individual was late in preventing certain event from happening.
SCP-Map-01-169 disappeared on 14/7/2018. Since this event, all Instances of SCP-Map-01 had slightly darker hue of their characteristic colors.

Discovery: Island ████████ and SCP-map were found through back tracing a signal responsible for information breach. This information breach was possible through the use of duplicate foundation credentials of O5 members. The targets of the breach were information about world history, current governments, and the position of several useful anomalies with limited supply. Of note is that the breach contained several queries for information regarding yet undiscovered anomalies. The localization of said items based on information in mentioned queries is ongoing.

It appears, that SCP-Map posses ability to transfer individuals to parallel universe, based on subconscious preferences. Further limitation appear to be the connections of the instances of SCP-Map-01. Further confirmation needed.

Current policy regarding the SCP-Map is to confirm nature of the other ends and to secure either the structure or island itself to prevent unwanted transports. Another option is to to create a truce with whatever organization hold the structure there. The main content of the truce will be not sending anything dangerous through and to allow periodic exchange of expedition data. We don't want to risk getting some nasty surprise through SCP-Map.
