We aim to explore a potentially valuable tool for scenario writing, focusing on the collection of user experiences organized around photos. We have developed a tool, Mobile AP II, to produce a comprehensive context classification based on a sample scenario to demonstrate how the context of photos and their relationships can be integrated to assist with scenario-based design. An efficient scenario-building technique for concept development and design leads to a simple user-modeling framework whereby the Mobile AP II system can learn to display query results based on photo relationships provided by the designer. The resulting retrieval, browsing and visualization can adapt to the user’s selection of content, context and preferences in style and interactive navigation. Our purpose is to develop rich and flexible methods and concepts that can incorporate users’ descriptions and their current and potential use of a scenario into the very design reasoning about such a system.
