We met with Dr. Jeff Davey to conduct first hand research on how to take readings from a hive. This was the perfect opportunity to get hands on with bee keeping to get a better idea of what the process actually involves.

One of the key insights was confirming the different aspects of information Jeff records about his hives. Until this point we had developed our app based off of an online beekeepers record chart which included a lot of unnecessary information that we did not need.

We decided that we needed to strip back the data and make a more simplified interface for our final prototype design.
