Scenario: I am a San José resident and come upon San
José’s public sustainability dashboard.
First I need
to enter
inputs...
Where do I
live?
What year to
view
emissions
for?
Which group
to see data
encompass?
Which sector
to view
emissions
for?
Proceeding
to next
step...
Now to view
emissions
rating...
I am viewing
a map of SJ
by block
group
Highlighted
in green is
my block
group based
on address
I am viewing
my Overall
ranking (block
group)
I see that my
block group
ranks 58th
, and
can see how I

A higher score (max
100) indicates
higher sustainability
in that sector. For
more information,

My block
group ...
I can share
my results
with my
neighbors
and friends
via social
media
Proceeding
to next
step...
Now to view
emissions
analysis...
I see my
block group
score again
(for water),
with more
specific
details
My block
group is
doing better
than the
average!
I can see
water usage
per person
used on
average in
2016, in
different
metrics
How am I
personally
doing, in
comparison?
I can view
monthly
metrics as
well, and
can select a
range
I can
compare
data with
close
neighbors &
all block
groups
I don’t want
to view
monthly
metrics in
gallons --
how to
change?
“Gallons” is
selected --

Proceeding

This is
where I can

personally
compare
Still looking

will choose
to enter data
for one
month

Select the
groups I
want to
compare my
data with
Then click to
calculate
results
I can easily
change
units -- but
how do I
change
months
without
re-entering?
I can see my
average

What if I
want to save
my data and
view it again
later?
I can save
my data by
clicking
here; I can
also see my
database
I can save
my data by
logging in
and making
an account
Proceeding
to next
step...
Now to view
recommenda
-tions &
rewards...
Still looking
at water --
there are
recommend
-ations for
reducing
water usage
There are
some
appliances
listed that
can help me
save on
energy
There’s some
quick
conservation
tips I could
possibly use
I can also go
to SJ’s page
for more
conservation
methods
Are there
more
incentives
for trying to
be more
sustainable
?
There’s a
rewards
program!
Participating
in the
rewards
program
requires an
account
Potential
rewards I can
earn!
I can go
back to any
of the
previous
steps with a
simple click

  45. 45. ISSUES TO ADDRESS ● If you did an iterative design process, worth mentioning/mentioning relevant insights if they are particularly significant. ● How do you make ppl interested in using the dashboard in the first place? ● How do you ensure ppl aren't trolling/giving fake info? ● Worth thinking a bit about ways to build interactivity re: communication into the dashboard - rn its mostly just about visualizing one's sustainability, not rly talking about it/providing feedback to the government. ● I think the dashboard would be most helpful if data is provided in a more simple/immediate way - this is already being done for sure, but one area that jumps out to me is some automated summary of info based on data entry with like "you're doing best in..." and "you're doing worst in..." categories.
