AUTHORS: Lowell Ballard, Timmons Group

ABSTRACT: An effective app doesn’t just present a multitude of information; it presents this information efficiently. The Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries (VDGIF) wanted to update a legacy web application created several years ago titled “Find Game”. VDGIF has distinct users that it needs to provide targeted information to: hunters, wildlife viewers, anglers, and boaters. By creating designated paths through the site for each user group, VDGIF can deliver relevant content and tailored information based on communities of interest.

Timmons Group analyzed the existing version and spoke with numerous users and subject matter experts to understand the underlying issues and desired outcomes. Timmons Group utilized its user interface and user experience (UI/UX) experts to model the application based off specific user stories. The Timmons Group application development team used Agile techniques to help in the design process presenting various “iterations” of wireframes for the product owner on VDGIF’s side to review.

The final product is an enhanced user interface with multiple landing pages specific to user interests. From hunting and fishing, to simple bird watching, users are able to filter their search but they are given valuable data based on their search criteria.
