Proportional Timeline Visualization
Body Camera Activity Log (Audit Trail)
Developed while Product Design Intern at Axon - Summer 2017
Axon's body cameras log every user action into Audit Trails which are used in investigations and as evidence in court to establish ground truth.
I redesigned Axon's audit trails to be interactive + clearly surveyable by identifying the central concern, the proportional representation of time.
Prior to my internship at Axon, audit trails were raw spreadsheet tables:
Their form made quick understanding difficult. The relative timing of events was obscured because each entry occupied the same vertical space — entries a second apart appeared as close as entries a day apart.
As audit trails are meant to accurately represent the sequence of events, a chrono-proportional view would better reflect the pacing.
