The GeoBuilder tool allows uses to integrate geospatial data with associated tables and plots into a map enabling easy dissemination, analysis and visualization of the data. 

Usability tests on the tool involving journey mapping and content understanding were carried out to re-design the user interface to make it more intuitive for both users familiar and unfamiliar with GIS applications. 


This work was carried out as part of the Discovery Park Undergraduate Research Internship program and presented at the DURI student poster session, July 28, 2016
