Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
This work explores an application concept for small mobile devices, displaying structured "Big Data" based on human web reporting. The target user is a traveler interested in geopolitical events in the visited region and the concept focuses on high level signals to describethe situation and allows for following up, down to original reporting sources. Interviews and a survey was used to investigate the target user group's current behavior and needs while traveling and in unstable regions. The design process is described in reference to interaction design practices and successful applications on the market today, resulting in aconcept presented in the form of high fidelity sketches, well documented interaction style and transitions, and a clickable low delity prototype. The work can be used as a reference document for further development.
