PBS Route Assesment Tool

Engineering firm ARRB worked with software developers Big Cloud to build the RAT! PBS Route assessment tool for local government. I was contracted by Big Cloud to work on the UI.


  • Design the layout of information and form elements in the tool to allow users to easily add assessment data for all route elements.
  • Design a set of icons for building route diagrams within the tool.
  • Design a set of icons for mapping routes in Nokia maps..
  • Solution

    The initial prototype ARRB had in place presented the route diagram horizontally, which proved difficult to manage in long/complex route paths. I turned the diagram around to work vertically and created a set of interlocking icons. The forms I created allowed for:

    • Inclusion of custom data for each route element.
    • A grading system for each part of the route that fed in to an overall route grade.

    I delivered:

    • Screen designs
    • App-ready icon artwork
    • Brand elements, colour chart, style guide
    • Documentation

    The project was initially launched in 2012 and updated in 2014 to include integration with Nokia maps. For this second part of the project I produced a set of map-specific icons and updated layouts and icons for the route diagram.
