Personal Project

Redesign on Travel Planner

Project Description

Map does not only give us directions, it also helps visualize travel information, which makes planning itineraries easier. When we pin places on a map, it shows where they are and how close they are with each other. However, it is not common to see people using map for travel planning. This project was made to understand the reasons and build a travel planner that utilizes map visualization.

Aim

Understand how travelers plan before and during travel and the reason why they used the existing platforms.

Target User

22 millennials in Hong Kong.
All love traveling and travelled more than twice in a year.

Format

60-min casual interview with opened-end questions.

Insight

  • All participants concerned the distribution of locations when they plan their trips.

  • They found easier typing the location names on document editors instead of saving them on Google Map

"I don’t know I can build my own map in Google Map."

"I know I can save location on Google Map but I refused to do it

since it is easier to use document. "

Quotes from participants

User Flow on saving location on Google Map

Many steps, right ?

I was thinking to design a "tagging friends" function for locations to allow users to build their own map while typing notes.

Design Mock Up

I created a design to put a note editor and map together which allows you to pin locations on the map while taking notes.

You can simply type “@” to tag a location in the editor and add the location pin on the map simultaneously.
