we're still fascinated with maps, though they've gotten way smaller. the world is also smaller and faster. today we use GPS technology.
your present GPS receiver shows:
*maps (including street maps, displayed in human readable format via text or in a graphical format),
*turn-by-turn navigation directions to a human in charge of a vehicle or vessel via text or speech, *directions fed directly to an autonomous vehicle such as a robotic probe,
*traffic congestion maps (depicting either historical or real time data) and
*suggested alternative directions,
*information on nearby amenities such as restaurants, fueling stations, and tourist attractions.
what's the best way to design a map?
target your audience first! use dictate style!
