Mars Interactive Pass Allocation Navigator (MARSIPAN)

contextual inquiry, user testing, wireframing, data sketches (p5.js), ux design
During the summer of 2021, I designed a tool for NASA to visualize, diagnose, and navigate pass allocations: the planned communications between rovers and satellites on Mars, back to Earth. I worked with a team of engineers at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, along with another designer and developer through the Data to Discovery Program. We are currently continuing to develop the tool to provide more functionality and integration with existing workflows.
