Insights From the User Inquiry

After reviewing the data we collected I found the answers to question eleven fairly interesting. The question asked, “On map systems such as this one, do you usually look for places of interest or specific directions?”. It was interesting to see that the majority of people who use interactive maps use them to gain specific directions. This means that people use google maps more for a navigation tool more than anything else.

Since people find google maps to be useful in this way more than anything else, I believe that the integration into mobile technology, that our group plans to accomplish, should have real time updated maps similar to a gps or voice guided driving directions for hands free navigation and safety while driving. I believe that our research shows that these features would be greatly welcomed and would add a new level of convenience to google maps.
