In fall 2011, my Design Research classmates Janette Song, Bill Rihn, Lisa Woods and I were presented with the task of investigating how people navigate using cues from the natural world.

Acting as the research firm Calicocho with Garmin as our prospective client, we spent the semester conducting in-depth studies on navigation - from behavioral research, navigation intercept interviews in the field, conversations with industry experts, to qualitative interviews with both GPS users and abstainers.

Here is the slideshow of our final insights, presented to the CCA community December 2011.
