Our paper prototype seems to have solved many of the user questions that we have learned to be problematic to our website. Google Maps although very useful does have its flaws, and by re drawing the interface we have fixed many of them. My main design question is about our actual interface. This question is, will adding the side tabbing feature be effective? Right now the features lack a space along the interface so we decided to add features such as Get Directions, My Maps and others to simplify where certain things might be located.
I feel this will help the users be able to navigate through the site easier and get where they want to go much more efficiently. There could be problems however because some may think that the tabs are not informative. However, overtime it will help to see what tabs are used most and what tabs are not.
