Contextmapping tools are varied, and include tools that were previously thought to be the domain of professional designers, including visioning tools, visual thinking tools, but also traditional research tools as observations and interview. Using the tools calls upon the design and research skills of users and researchers. Contextmapping is a procedure for conducting contextual research with users, where tacit knowledge is gained about the context of use of products. It aims to inform and inspire design teams, where users and stakeholders actively participate in the design process to ensure a good fit between the design and the use of a product.
