What is IA?

Information Architecture is the practice of finding meaning in patterns, organizing information to better communicate ideas, and creating systems that promote shared understanding. It is how communication, navigation, and sharing of information across the globe are facilitated.


World Information Architecture Day is a one-day annual celebration hosted by the Information Architecture Institute and held in dozens of locations across the globe.

How Are We Using It?

This year WIAD Tampa Bay is partnering with Chart 411 to hold
a one-day conference and workshop. Chart 411 is a local non- profit in St. Petersburg with environmentally focused education and initiative programs.


We will take time to learn more about IA, talk about how we can use IA to benefit our local community, and then put our skills to work to help solve an IA problem for Chart 411.
