Vision defines the data physicalisation project’s goals and aspirations, it outlines what the data physicalisation wants to become (long term). It is the “why” of the project and documenting this will help you to understand the direction and where the project was going. Take a look at the DAPTEC Vision.
Mission summarizes the purpose that drives the data physicalisation. It is the statement that defines the project’s purpose and primary objectives. As a team, the mission statement will help you to work out the “what” and the “how” of the project. To get started think about some of these questions: Identify what the data physicalisation needs to do? What is the purpose of the data physicalisation? Who is it for? Where will it be located? How will it work? Why is it important? You can use your answers as a base for mission statement draft 1.
