UX Exercise


David is a senior lecturer in Marine Biology at the University of Glasgow. His passion is to explore rock pools.
With easy access to various areas of interest on the West Coast of Scotland, he would like to keep track of their tidal movements, in order to best utilise his sparse free time whilst on the go.


There is a wealth of data available through the BBC Weather website, which is not accessible on the BBC Weather App. This data includes Tide Tables for the whole of the UK.

The proposed process would incorporate Tide Tables data into the BBC Weather App.

Interactive Prototype

This prototype uses one set of data (Tide Table for Ardrossan), and adapts it to the current ‘Add Location’ process on the BBC Weather App.
