FOCUS40 Interactive Panel
As part of revising the Service Delivery Policy, the office of performance management & innovation conducted a survey to get rider input. The results of “uncomfortable”, “would not board” and “unacceptable” crowding levels were part of the result of the rider input survey. In order to engage the customers to understand the MBTA today and the Greater Boston of tomorrow in the Focus40 Interactive Panel, I designed a poster via analyzing and visualizing the data we got from the survey with colleagues in the office.
Final Infographic Design
Talking about the idea of the first part of the infographic design, the first thought is to highlight the raising unacceptable percentage when the level of crowding goes up. Since the line chart with markers is best for showing trends, I decided to use the 6 different levels of crowding car pictures to represent the markers so that the increasing trend of unacceptance and the levels of crowding can be connected in to a big chart. In this case, when people are standing far away from the infographic, they can be easier to notice the trend of crowding tolerance. The second thought is to distinguish the gender differences when facing to different levels of crowding. By using the light red and dark blue to differentiate male and female, the gender difference can be more obvious.
As for the second part about the importance for getting a seat, the idea of using the exploded pie charts aims to show the differences of importance for people to get a seat on each mode. Additionally, replacing the name of each mode with their real models behind every pie chart is to remind people of how important they feel to get a seat when taking different modes.
