Original map

Original Map

  • Problems with the map:

    • symbols too crowded and hard to discern

    • scale bar was inadequate

    • excessive labels blended in with the map

    • Borders, rivers, and roads lacked contrast

    • symbols difficult to discern


Our map

Our Map

  • Improvements made:

    • Addition and labeling of surrounding provinces and countries – greater geographical context

    • Symbol changed to be more consistent

    • Borders, rivers, and roads changed- easily interpretable

    • More useful scale bar

    • Labels moved to more distinguishable places

Method

Method

  • After redesigning our map, we interviewed 20 people:

    • A questionnaire consisting of 7 map comprehension questions were administered to participants

    • 10 were given the original map

    • 10 were given the redesigned map


Hypothesis

Hypothesis

  • By means of testing the maps with a questionnaire, we hypothesize that subjects using the redesigned map will:

    • take less time to answer the questionnaire

    • and will answer 50% more questions correctly

      than subjects using the redesigned map.
