oco-2 data service

 
 

SO WHAT:

Climate scientists now have access to a centralized carbon emission data portal supporting climate change research. 

 

OVERVIEW:

With the approaching launch of the OCO-2 mission (Orbiting Carbon Observatory - 2, launched July 2, 2014), members of the OCO-2 mission collaborated with the Human Interfaces Group to develop a web experience which localized credible CO2 data products into one location. The CO2 Virtual Science Data Environment consolidates various carbon dioxide (CO2) data products from separate Earth orbiting CO2 observatories into a single web service.

 

MY ROLE:

  • Cultivated working relationship with external user community:
    It was clear through the first round of user interviews that the design team needed to engage with a set of users outside of JPL not initially represented in first design iterations of the website. 
     
  • Conducted and lead the user research effort for the website: I ran in person interviews with users, designed light weight paper prototypes, and tested light weight prototypes with the user community. 
     
  • Led the User experience design direction: I iterated and usability tested working user experience concepts for retrieving data from respective orbiters. 
     
  • Produced final visual design: I created the visual design and brand of the
    front end.
