French term or phrase: Marquer des cartes
This is part of a list of things to do when an employee is kidnapped. Other items on the list include notifying relatives and liaising with police. It obviously could mean make notes on maps (ie location of kidnapping, possible routes etc) but it is such a vague bullet point (especially compared to the others which are very clearly expressed) that I wonder if I am missing an alternative translation.
