Camptime - Find camping near you
This is a 4 week design sprint that I did as a case study.
I hypothesized that if I created a resource for hikers and backpackers to more easily reserve campsites and find trails, then adventurers will be able to increase the efficiency of planing their trip as well as decrease confusion around rules and amenities provided at each individual campsite and trail.
What is CampTime?
Camptime is a service aiming to minimize the stress around planning a camping trip. Currently when planning for a trip, even experienced users, often have to check multiple pages of a confusing government page or even search multiple sites for clarification on what is allowed and what amenities exist at each campsite. With Camptime, all of the information that is most important to Hikers, novice to experienced, is consolidated in one place.
Everything you see here, I did it :)
UI comparative analysis
Hikers can’t find the information they need
Finding vital information on what amenities exist at a particular campground, if any, where the campground is, and how much camping there costs is crucial to each user I interviewed. Oftentimes this crucial information is not clear, or available, on government sites or it is only on multiple third party sites.
Consolidate information in an easy to access, familiar resource
My plan was to consolidate all the information users find vital into one easy to use resource using familiar map styles ported from google and an equally familiar layout.
