In software development planning, a roadmap is used to describe what lies ahead. In our industry, we say: "put it in the roadmap". But when it comes to maps, I would search "on" a map.

Do I say something is "in the roadmap" or "on the roadmap"?

  • With the map folded up, it's in the roadmap. Spread the map out on the table and it's on the roadmap. (Seriously, if you consider the metaphor.) – Hot Licks Mar 8 at 17:10

An English idiom is: put (someone, something, or some place) on the map TFD

To make some place or thing very famous or renowned; to establish some place as being remarkable or noteworthy.

It works nicely here in your question:

In our industry, we have "put x on the map".
