Restructuring the website menus
I have tried multiple times to get the website structure correct. The challenge has been that we are trying to be all things to all people at the same time.
I took another look and have a new proposal based on some of what came through the 2019/20 strategy ideas. I'd like to re-focus on "personas" - using the website as a way to show distinct groups the front door to OSM. In a way this is similar to the first OSMUK website arrangement where we split content according to "Contribute to the map" and "Use the map". I does go further with the personas.
Here is the structure I am proposing:
Getting started As an individual As an organisation Collecting info Editing the map Using OpenStreetMap Donating data Finding help From the community Useful resources Professional services About us OSM and the UK Chapter Our aims Our members / Corporate members Join today The CIC Newsletters Training & consultancy Request a trainer Request a speaker Consultancy services Join our Talent Directory Case studies Community mapping Finding other mappers Quarterly projects Regional mapathons UK tagging guidelines Rent a camera Surveyor hi-vis jackets
I also considered a section on Support Us/Our Member as follows. Not sure if this is needed. As you can see above all the elements can be placed elsewhere.
Support us / Our members Join today Corporate members The CIC Donate data
Pleas let me know your thoughts. If you are happy I can go ahead and start making the changes.
P.S. Case Studies was the section I struggled to place. These seem to be mostly a showcase of talent so I went with the training/consultancy section but I'm not 100% sure of that.
