Taking Juxtaposition into Account: Supporting People's Work with Maps
Association for Computing Machinery
This poster presents research about how maps are used at an emergency service centre. It focus on emergency service operators' work practices, how they use maps in order to find the address and communicate to others the location of incidents, such as traffic accidents and fires. We analyse how the operators juxtapose the physical paper map with the computerised counterpart. When designing new technology there is a need to take juxtaposition into account.
