In this paper we introduce and motivate the concept of orientation data, as it appears in the framework for motivic Donaldson–Thomas theory built by Kontsevich and Soibelman. By concentrating on a single simple example we explain the role of orientation data in defining the integration map, a central component of the wall crossing formula.
