Site Blueprinting was one of the many skills that I focused on as a part of my Information Architecture studies. The purpose of these documents is to show how content and information is connected and organized on a given site or platform. For this faux-project, I focused on understanding the types of information and how it was placed on the Arduino.cc website.
The Arduino Project “is an open-source electronics platform based on easy-to-use hardware and software. It’s intended for anyone making interactive projects.” This means that the project’s site has plenty of information for all different aspects of their software and hardware that a user would need to access during a purchase, set-up, troubleshooting, or continued use. In order to understand what different types of content there were, as well as where they are located in the current iteration of the site, a blueprint was commissioned.
