The objective of this deliverable is to describe the research process and the resulting user scenarios that will be utilized as tools in the design and development of the inDICEs Open Observatory Platform. These processes have so far ranged in activities and research methodologies that allow for stakeholders to identify user needs and functional requirements that have then been translated into technical specifications, wireframes, and design schemes in terms of data architecture. This deliverable draws from the activities carried out during the first 10 months of the inDICEs project within Work Package 4 (WP4) by all consortium partners and describes the results achieved by this work package.
The deliverable also includes a set of wireframes and prototypes providing a preliminary illustration of the different functionalities of the platform. These have been presented and discussed with the project partners, who represent the platform’s end users, and incorporate the initial feedback received by them.
To define these requirements, Platoniq has been designing and leading online Co-creation workshops to generate user scenarios based on direct input from participants which have been used for analysing and prioritizing user needs. Applying a user-centered design approach, these user stories and wireframes have been and will be iteratively reviewed by the stakeholders so that the final product incorporates their feedback and optimizes the user experience.
