Design rationale constitutes of a set of methods, techniques and tools that are used to record design decisions. This paper emphasizes on the design phase of a Geographical Information System (GIS) that provides environmental information used for educational purposes and shows how design rationale has been used for designing the final product. The main characteristic of the system is that it can adapt its interaction to each user interacting with the system. Therefore, the main design decisions that are retrieved involve user modeling, the way the information is adapted etc. More specifically, the paper describes how a structure-oriented approach of design rationale has been employed for making decisions regarding the adaptation of the system. The structure-oriented approach is implemented by the QOC notation .
