All we know how hard sometimes it is to deal with our customers especially in cartography/web mapping field. It can become nightmare to identify what actually our users want for the web maps we create. Of course you can organize interviews, do users surveys, or just simply create map based on your knowledge and expect that it fits users needs. It is really hard to ask users directly what they want, what functions they need, what design they expect. How about if we change process of requirements analysis from developer -> user to user -> developer. If we give right tool for our users to specify what they actualy want? And what is the best way to analyse map requirements..? Create a map!
