System Mapping

Barriers to Utility Cycling in an Urban Setting - System Map and Humanly Exhibition


Goal: Develop and visualize an in-depth understanding into a particular issue on a local level.

Strategy: This semester-long capstone project was completed through extensive desk research, in-person interviewing of community members, and data collection through surveys. The combined data was then analyzed in order to draw connections and conclusions relating to the barriers and overarching systems contributing to utility cycling in the local context. The development of this system map required skills in research, systems thinking, and visual design. This project was completed with one other student and was displayed as part of the Humanly 2019 exhibition.
