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.
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. Cooperative entities are to be taken to Site-169 to be interviewed. Interviewed entities are to be taken into 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 to be 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: Site-169 was built on the island ████████ for the purpose of researching and containing SCP-MAP. SCP-Map is a structure of 13 stone pillars 2,6 meters high and 0,65 meter in circumference. Each pillar is covered in the same set of symbols of unknown language. The cave housing SCP-map is populated by floating particles which emit orange light. Particles are estimated to be 1 centimeter in diameter1.The ceiling of the cave is covered in fourteen groups of black circular markings each measuring 7 cm in diameter.2

Any living creature coming into contact with the symbols on the pillars will cause the particles to group together into larger transparent, gaseous spheres, each with a different coloration and collectively designated as SCP-Map-01. Upon creation the instances of SCP-Map-01 and their representative connections form the same pattern upon each activation.

On 10.12.2017 during research with symbols which were earlier confirmed safe with experiment SCP-MAP-EX1. Junior Researcher Nicolas Wane misinterpreted one of the 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-map-01 connected to them. After this exchange ended, an unknown humanoid was formed by orange particles 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 a desiccated human skeleton with a mechanical third eye implanted in (its forehead) and several storage chips implanted at various points in its cranium. Upon decrypting the storage devices, it was revealed that the third eye implant was being used to record memories, thoughts, video and audio feeds and storing all these information onto the storage chips. Recovered data identified the origin of the recovered skeleton to be represented by the SCP-MAP-169 located in center of the pattern with black colored gas.
Last thoughts recorded on the storage chips implied the unknown individual was late in preventing certain series of events.
SCP-Map-01-169 disappeared from pattern created by SCP-MAP-01 instances 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 tracing back a signal responsible for information breach. This information breach was possible through the use of foundation credentials of several 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.

Additional materials:

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.
