Learn about planning an interactive map.
- [Instructor] Planning an interactive map…requires some additional layers of consideration.…Firstly, you'll need to find out what the aim…of the map is and why it's going to be interactive.…Will it, for example, reveal hidden content by exploration?…Does it link through to other sources?…Is it both of those things?…Does it require animation?…These are the first considerations…you're going to need to look at.…Then you'll need to look into the format,…including any restrictions that the choice of format…may impose and how you're going to work around them.…
As a designer, you'll need to understand triggers…and events, at least at a basic level,…so you can have informed discussions…with others who may be collaborating with you.…Creating interactive maps is a challenge,…but with the right people working with you,…and a little learning, one you should be able to meet.…
