Routing has been the core experience of digital maps, and has evolved considerably in mobile and desktop experiences. I was responsible for designing the public transit routing as well as walking and driving experiences including traffic awareness and timed departures.
Key challenges include condensing a high number of elements and variables to inform the user of the best way to go as well as matching the conceptual structure of maneuvers in a sequence and in the geographic space of the map canvas.
Integration with searching, disambiguation and smart standards for the selection of responses and modes of transport according to context completed the playbook.
my role: Lead designer, responsible for the interaction design, scope planning with business owners and product owners, briefing and follow up of user testings and delivery of prototypes and design specifications for production.
