Visualization: Geochart - Google Chart Tools - Google Code Overview A geochart is a map of a country, a continent, or a region with two modes: The region mode colorizes whole regions, such as countries, provinces, or states. The marker mode marks designated regions using bubbles that are scaled according to a value that you specify. A Geochart is rendered within the browser using SVG or VML. Note that the map is not scrollable or draggable; if that's what you want, consider a map visualization instead. Examples Regions Example The regions style fills entire regions (typically countries) with colors corresponding to the values that you assign. function drawRegionsMap() { var data = google.visualization.arrayToDataTable([ ['Country', 'Popularity'], ['Germany', 200], ['United States', 300], ['Brazil', 400], ['Canada', 500], ['France', 600], ['RU', 700] ]); var options = {}; Markers Example A marker style map renders bubble-shaped markers at specified locations with the color and size that you specify.

Core Flex 4 – Elements vs Children « Bill White's Blog When I started using Flex 4 I tried to get up to speed by using the new version in a manner similar to its predecessor until I came across roadblocks or when I determined I was able to take advantage of the new features I had heard about such as skinning, states, etc. I quickly found that there were some obvious Flex questions that I was not able to answer without diving into the API docs and by playing with some examples so I could truly understand what is going on. I knew from past experience that Halo was hiding a lot of the dirty details about what was going on in the display list, but once you start using Spark, you will come to see just how much Halo was really doing under the covers and why Spark is a much more ‘honest’ way of working with the display list. One of the first things I hit was the term ‘elements’. What is an element? Is it the same thing as a child? So I started to really read the API docs, Flex source and blog postings about these topics.

AIR pour iOS – Compiler une MobileApplication Flex 4.5 pour iOS avec PFI - Adobe Flex Tutorial - Tutoriaux Flex Builder, MXML, ActionScript, AS3 Le but de ce tutorial est de pouvoir compiler une application Flex Mobile en une application native pour iOS (iPhone / iPad). Les lignes de commandes présentes dans ce tutorial fonctionne avec la version présente de PFI (11 Oct 2010) qui pourra changer lorsque la prochaine version de PFI (Package For IPhone) sortira. La dernière mise à jour de PFI est disponible en téléchargement sur les Adobe Labs: En attendant de faire mieux… La prochaine version de PFI sera vraisemblablement complètement intégrée à Flash Builder Burrito lors de sa sortie, un peu comme BlackBerry Tablet OS et Android sont actuellement supportés. Le Packager For IPhone actuel gère seulement Adobe AIR 2.0.2 et pas les nouvelles API AIR 2.5. Encore une fois, lorsque Adobe aura mis à jour le packager, ces recommandations ne seront plus d’actualité. ou <?

28 Rich Data Visualization Tools We’re currently working with a dozen different clients, all web application (re)designs. All of these clients have applications and need equally visualizations to help their end customers analyze data quickly and effectively. What makes my job really interesting is that these clients are in different industries and are using different technologies. So we have pulled together a set of 28 tools for creating graphs, Gantt charts, diagrammers, calendars/schedulers, gauges, mapping, pivot tables, OLAP cubes, and sparklines, in Flash, Flex, Ajax or Silverlight. Platform is a pure javascript application framework for creating real-time collaborative applications that run in the browser. AnyChart is a flexible Flash based solution that allows you to create interactive and great looking flash charts. Axiis is a Data Visualization Framework for Flex.

The Liskov Substitution Principle » phpmaster Morpheus: Neo, I’m inside the Matrix right now. Sorry to give you the bad news but our agent-tracking PHP program needs a quick update. It currently uses PDO’s query() method with strings to fetch the status of all the Matrix agents from our database, but we need to do that with prepared queries instead. Neo: Sounds fine, Morpheus. Can I get a copy of the program? Morpheus: No problem. Neo issues a few Git commands and soon the following code appear before his eyes. Neo: Morpheus, I just got the files. The smooth sound of a computer keyboard fills the air. Neo: Morpheus, the subclass is ready to be tested. Morpheus does a quick search on his laptop and sees the class below. Morpheus: The adapter looks good. Morpheus hesitates for a moment and runs the previous index.php file, this time using Neo’s masterpiece PdoAdapter class. And then, a scream! Morpheus: Neo, I’m sure you’re the One! Another scream. Neo: What went wrong?! More screams. Morpheus: I really don’t know. So far, so good. Done.

AdMob adverts in AIR for Android applications « pixelpaton So how on earth do you get ads to correctly show in a AIR for Android application running on phone? This question has stumped me for a while now and with help from Ian Stokes ( I’ve managed to get it working. There seems to be still some problems with it, but at least this post should help other developers get up to speed with what necessary to get it running. UPDATE: Xavi Vives (@xavivives) discovered that the problem of ads no showing up was in fact due to there being no ads to show! I assume you already know how to publish an app to an Android phone. To display an advert within an AIR app you need to be able to load a webpage containing the adverts code. A few notes about StageWebView: It is only available to AIR 2.5 (and above) applications, if you try publishing a normal swf you will receive compile/runtime errors. So lets cover some basics. This will load a html page and display it normalHtml from Terry Paton on Vimeo. AdmobTest from Terry Paton on Vimeo.

Data visualisation DIY: our top tools | News | What data visualisation tools are out there on the web that are easy to use - and free? Here on the Datablog and Datastore we try to do as much as possible using the internet's powerful free options. That may sound a little disingenuous, in that we obviously have access to the Guardian's amazing Graphics and interactive teams for those pieces where we have a little more time - such as this map of public spending (created using Adobe Illustrator) or this Twitter riots interactive. But for our day-to-day work, we often use tools that anyone can - and create graphics that anyone else can too. So, what do we use? Google fusion tables This online database and mapping tool has become our default for producing quick and detailed maps, especially those where you need to zoom in. The main advantage is the flexibility - you can can upload a kml file of regional borders, say - and then merge that with a data table. This excellent tutorial by Google's Kathryn Hurley is a great place to start. Datamarket
