If there was ever a time when you were thrilled to have TIVO it was during the scene in LOST when the underground bunker becomes a perfect place to host a rave. Ok, it didn't do exactly that, but think about the possibilities with the black lights? Where's Kate?
Anywho, it turns out that once the black lights turn on there is a hand-written, glowing map that details various locations across the island. Most of us only saw a brief glimpse of the map and were hoping Locke would go into details of what he saw. Instead, ABC gave us the ultimate blue balls by leaving the secret inside Locke's head.
Fortunately for us, not only have people captured the image off the door, but analyzed it as well.

LOST Door Map
The image above came from the analysis from Entertainment Weekly. The map they show also has hotspots that allow you to zoom in for further information; or should I say theories?
Locke and Henry Gale are caught in the Hatch lounge when some sort of lockdown goes into effect and blast doors fall, walling them off from the rest of the compound — and the button. The timer counts down. Locke's legs are trapped beneath a blast door, so reluctantly, he explains the button to Henry. Henry appears to prove trustworthy and wriggles through the vents, ostensibly to push the button. The timer counts down — to zero, by the sound of it. The lights flicker out, black-light backups come on, and Locke sees what appears to be a map of the island and its various Dharma stations scrawled in invisible ink on the blast door.

The picture above is a detailed image that has brief write-ups for just about every detail marked out on the map. You can check out the full-size image HERE (you have to if you want to read the descriptions).
What does all this mean? Well, it most likely means that we can expect a dozen new theories to appear online for LOST over the next couple of weeks. And, seeing that the map is not revisited in the next episode, we are going to have to wait and see how Locke wants to explore his new information.
