1. Walk the aisles and the store looking at the surroundings you're in, and how you are directed into and out of spaces. Look on the floor for guides or signals, on the shelving at the ends of rows, above the shelving for labels. Use of floor markings, and of carpeting. Watch for non-written signals. Watch for regularities and patterns of placement. Make notes on the following elements as they appear in the store. Some may not. As you locate these, name them in your notes.
- Paths: Familiar streets, walkways, subway routes, bus lines, aisles,
- Edges: The physical barriers of walls, fences, rivers, or shorelines, counters, shelves
- Districts: Places with a distinct identity, such as, in New York, Chinatown, Wall Street, and Greenwich Village, Baby Care, Women's Clothing, others
- Nodes: Major intersection or meeting places, such as the clock in New York’s Grand Central Terminal, deli, coffee shop, others
- Landmarks: Tall, visible structures that allow you to orient over long distances: category signs, area signs, advertising signs, others
2. Record the store's classification scheme from the general (produce > vegetables > ) to the specific (carrots). Make notes. Pay special attention to the //labels//: the terms used to name the groupings. These are navigation aids. Take note of some of the items that are part of each group.

This exercise gives you the opportunity to become aware of how people navigate in a shopping space: how the store has placed wayfinding and other navigation devices, such as paths, edges, districts, nodes, and landmarks. You're looking at two aspects: the physical layout of the store, and the navigation aids, which are typically signs that label what's located where.
Draw on Lynch, chaps 3 and 4.

=====Wayfinding Exercise =====
22 Feb 2017 draft
In ... //The Image of the City// (1960), Kevin Lynch coined the term //wayfinding// to describe his concept of environmental legibility—that is, the elements of the built environment that allow us to navigate successfully through complex spaces like cities and towns. The most fundamental underlying metaphor of the World Wide Web is navigation through a space populated by places we call web “sites,” and thus the wayfinding metaphor is perfect for thinking about web navigation. [[http://webstyleguide.com/wsg3/4-interface-design/2-navigation.html | 1]]

This exercise gives you the opportunity to become aware of how people navigate in a shopping space: how the store has placed wayfinding and other navigation devices, such as paths, edges, districts, nodes, and landmarks. You're looking at two aspects: the physical layout of he store, and the navigation aids - mainly signs that labels what's located where.
Go to Target or WalMart, or L&M Fleet Farm or Home Depot. Lueken's or Marketplace. Hobby Lobby might be good, too.
Draw on Lynch, chaps 3 and 4
You can do this in pairs or solo. Take notes and when you can, take pics.
1. Walk the aisles and the store looking at the surroundings you're in, and how you are directed into and out of spaces. Look on the floor for guides or signals, on the shelving at the ends of rows, above the shelving for labels. Watch for non-written signals. Watch for regularities and patterns of placement. Make notes on these elements of the store:
- Paths: Familiar streets, walkways, subway routes, bus lines
- Edges: The physical barriers of walls, fences, rivers, or shorelines
- Districts: Places with a distinct identity, such as, in New York, Chinatown, Wall Street, and Greenwich Village
- Nodes: Major intersection or meeting places, such as the clock in New York’s Grand Central Terminal

2. Record the store's classification scheme. Make notes. Pay special attention to the //labels//: the terms used to name the groupings. Tale note of some of the items that are part of each group.
