Flowcharting Samples

The following is a listing of the sample flowcharts that have been created using the system that has been devised.

Clicking on the text link or image will lead you to a full-size screen of the flowchart. Keep in mind that as we continue to improve and further develop this flowcharting system, these sample flowcharts will be updated and changed. In order to print these flowcharts use 81/2 x 11 paper and, according to the nature of the flowchart; print using the landscape of portrait options.

The War that Never Ends - Landmines

Landmines

This CD-ROM deals with the role of Canadian leaders and peacekeepers in the movement to ban landmines. This is the first flowchart that was created using this new system. It was also the easiest one, since the CD-ROM lacks depth and complicated elements.

Harry and the Haunted House

Harry and the Haunted House

This is a flowchart of the popular children's CD-ROM game. It makes use of such things as embedded (animated) elements, animated delays, end delays and automatic go-tos.

Amnesty International

Amnesty International

This is a flowchart of a CD-ROM produced by Amnesty International. This was a useful project to chart because the CD-ROM uses a variety of elements included in our symbol library.

Savannah College of Art and Design '96

Campus Tour

Flowcharting this CD-ROM was quite complicated because it made extensive use of embedded text pages. When examining the flowchart pay close attention to the balance of the design. This particular CD-ROM is problematic in that in some campus tours you are able to enter and exit rooms, while in others you can not. Had this project been created using flowcharting as a pre-production tool, this imbalance could have been avoided. The creativity of the CD-ROM is exceptional, however, those who notice this error in programming are left wondering why they are restricted in mobility when it is allowed elsewhere in the program, resulting in a less effective overall presentation. The flowchart is divided into two sections:

www.rcc.ryerson.ca. This Site is constantly being updated; therefore the flowchart presented will not reflect its current design. However, this particular example is indicative of what happens when poor pre-production planning is undertaken in designing a Site of such massive proportions. The imbalance and elements that do not connect create an atmosphere of confusion for the user, making it extremely difficult to navigate through the Site effectively. If you visit the Site today you will see vast improvements from its early days -- itís a process of evolution!
