After reviewing our collected data from the interviews, we were visualizing the main ideas with an affinity diagram. We were then continuing to narrow down things using a swim lane diagram, which turned out to be a powerfull tool.
Describing the overall use-cases in a storyboard we came out with the following concept: AvaLog
There are many observers in the field who support the Bavarian Avalanche Centre with important facts about the avalanche situation of a certain area. Though, this data is not exchanged digitally between both parties. Still, the centre is calling every single observer and asks for the information.
What’s the concept all about?
Here our idea steps in! We are proud to present AvaLog – the Avalanche Logging application for mobile devices! There are no time consuming telephone calls anymore! After the observer checks the conditions he/she fires up AvaLog, notes down the data and sends them straight to the Bavarian Avalanche Centre!
Time savings as phone calls are omitted, which in turn leads to faster publishing of the avalanche report.
