Open Data Navigation

Upon starting my job on Esri's Open Data team I was challenged with the task of completing a usability audit the platform I'd be working on. This task was intentionally open-ended, leaving me in the dark about existing problems and tasks the team was working on solving. My first impression of the product was how difficult it was to navigate between different components and features.

My usability audit resulted in restructuring the information architecture for the platform paired with a brand new navigational structure designed to make the platform easy to navigate, increase wayfinding, and increase intuitive browsing when working within the system.
