Urban Data Platform

The Challenge

Design an Urban Data platform for Croydon Council that would allow users to view several different data sets overlaid on a map. Among these data sets where current and past construction projects, heavy good vehicles routes, electric vehicle charging points, bike routes, traffic and the way each of these elements affect each other.

The Process

Spent the first week of this 4 week project conducting research on GIS and data overlays on maps, after which conducted competitive analysis and spent the rest of my time discussing the product with the client and watching them use their older platform. From there I was able to synthesise my research in order to define my design questions. I then wire framed and then through a series of testing and prototyping turned the wireframes into the current iteration of the platform.
