|Abstract:||This study presents preliminary results from a design-based research program examining ways to engage museum visitors in free-choice inquiry with geo-referenced census data, focusing on affording connections between "big" narratives about ancestry and migration, and "little" narratives about neighborhoods and personal identity. Preliminary findings have revealed affordances and tradeoffs in key design decisions that can be incorporated into ongoing iterations of the display.|
