swisstopo - Federal office of Topography
Swisstopo wanted to renew its geodata import application with which employees update the aerial images of Switzerland that are regularly collected during overflights of the country.

Import of the images and the quality controls will have to be carried out more quickly and intuitively than at present, both for daily users and for those who use it occasionally.

Individual interviews with German- and French-speaking staff members provided an in-depth understanding of the real needs of users and identified usability problems in the existing interface. Recommendations and wireframes were validated with users and the IT team in a UX workshop.

Major changes, in particular to the organisation of the home screen, the data tables and the guidance in the import process will be made before the launch in 2020 and will significantly improve the user experience and the performance of all users.
