Abstract:The focus of this bachelor thesis is on the redesign of a graphical user interface (GUI) for a geo-based 3D planning software named Win3D, which is developed by the company ROM3D. The software was never built for new users, which lead to new users quitting or needing extensive help. The challenge is to redesign the GUI for both user groups, with a focus on new users, where users do not quit the program or need extensive help. A first concept is co-created with new users. This concept is discussed with other new users and a main concept design is produced. This main concept design is for a large part implemented in a prototype so it can be tested and evaluated. The prototype is tested by new and experienced users. All issues found during testing were relatively small and quite easily solvable. New users believed that the tested concept would make it possible for them to work with the program on their own without receiving external help. The employees of the company stated that the concept design resolves all large annoyances that came with the current interface. It is their plan to turn the concept design into a working GUI.
