Portfolio / Master Address

Used participatory design techniques with the Geographical Information System department of the City of Bloomington, IN to create the interface for their master address database.

In this project I was assigned the task of developing the user interface for the Master Address database to be used interally only for the GIS Engineering department. Because of the nature of the project, we aimed for efficiency over intuitiveness. Th target audience was a team of five people who needed a front-end system for their existing Oracle database.

After initial interviews seeking design requirements, I led a series of participatory design sessions. Together we built several mock-ups in Adobe Fireworks using a digital projector in the conference room. Cliff, the developer, said that they were some of the most productive meetings he had ever attended.
