An exercise into a redesign of an existing information graphic to improve usability while maintaining the data. Dotlan Maps is a third party statistics and navigation tool for the MMO Eve Online with information tailored towards player statistics in space. The data is constantly updated however the original design only allows for one layer of information to be present at a time, with the redesign looking into combining multiple layers of data into a singular view. Statistics tracked in the redesign are player movement, non player ship deaths, and player ship deaths which in total provides a cleaner and easier graphic for players to find others within the game. Hovering over a specific system icon further reveals more information and statistics. The region of space used in the example named is Cloud Ring.
