After discussing the problems/components of google maps for so long I feel like many of our answers will be similar. This is because we have already justified our problem generated ways to solve it.
P-Google maps is used to get from one place to another
P-Google maps is an interactive map
R-We interviewed people to see if they used google maps, if they liked it, why they didn’t and what they specifically used it for
R-We also used word of mouth research, randomly discussed google maps with each other/our friends. We also glanced at it on our own time to see what we independently thought of the features.
I-People like when websites/basically anything is easier to use.
I-People don’t like when they see features and don’t know how to use it.
Some concepts I have thought of after doing this…..
1. Making the phone feature and incorporating google maps NOT just a navigation on to any cell phone will solve the part of making google maps easy to use because people will use it more often.
2. Simplifying the actual website (like I did in my sketch) with color, bold terms and less things to click on will help people understand how to browse the website more.
