Journey Mapper

The University of the Arts London comprises of six colleges spread across sixteen sites. Most of these sites are located in interesting areas of London.

Journey mapper is an online interactive tool that guides users on the time and distance it takes to reach each site by public transport from a chosen starting point. Additionally, it allows them to create a visual and auditory diary of journeys that they have undertaken around those sites.

A series of small physical models finally led to a digital interactive one that could deal with the scale and scope of the information. Prototypes for the interface were designed and then finally executed in Flash. Making this model a real-time interactive experience was proposed so that several users can utilize it at the same time and also choose to share their information with others, creating a growing web of virtual diaries.
