This chapter provides basic methods of service design, which is a key technique for bringing benefits of ICT and GIS to end users. The methods comprise a series of user-oriented designs including defining and scoping problems, identifying and analyzing stakeholders, designing and defining specification requirements of information and data, and prototyping. These are useful for interdisciplinary fields like disaster nursing and primary health care. The approach is also applied to the framework of analyzing case studies in the next chapter, so it is encouraged to read this chapter before the next chapter. Readers will be equipped with methods of analyzing problems for designing solutions with ICT and GIS after reading this chapter.
