GeoFlow Takes Data for a 3-D Drive In November, during the SharePoint Conference 2012, attendees received a Public Preview of project codename “GeoFlow” for Excel, the latest business-intelligence (BI) functionality to be integrated with Microsoft Excel 2013 later this year. As an Excel add-in, GeoFlow provides interactive, 3-D geospatial and temporal data visualizations.

About my SRD Tools I thought of writing down something about these tools: how I started them, why I started them, and more importantly: what's missing and other people's similar tools. Some years ago, a page named used to have all sorts of generators; but then one day it all disappeared. I wanted to have something I could rely on. These tools are online-only and most of them written in PHP.

Two Excellent Web Tools to Create Story Maps in Class July 26, 2014 The two web tools I m sharing with you today are ideal for creating and sharing mapped stories.

KLAKSVIK / Peaks and Valleys ✪ - LCLA office Shortlisted entry. Over the last 200 years, Klaksvik has grown from five settlements of a mere 100 people to a modern town of 5000 inhabitants. The large and swift population growth was triggered by the growing fishing industry, which led to the development of the areas along the shore for industrial purposes. The central part of town is virtually undeveloped and with a recent landfill in the center area. Klaksvík’s geography is truly remarkable; it held between two mountains and between two bays, and surrounded by a dramatic landscape. The configuration of the city is equally striking--urban development has historically happened along the length of the bay, while the civic and public in- stitutions have concentrated in the Eiðið, an urban corridor which runs from one bay to the other, yet fails to directly connect buildings or people with the water.

Using IFTTT and Google Drive to create a JSON API by Nick Moreton on CodePen JSON APIs are a pretty powerful way of connecting your frontend app to a dataset through Javascript. Most of the big web apps provide their API in JSON format (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) however, as you may know if you've ever tried to use these, they often require an OAuth login in order to access the API. This obviously isn't ideal if you don't want your users to have to log in to their Twitter/Facebook/Instagram account every time they view your app or website! Well, I've found a little bit of a workaround that may get you working with data in your front end without having to worry about stuff like OAuth. A few months back I needed to deliver a Designing With Data class and began experimenting with JQuery and JSON APIs.

Twisted Product: Snowball Snowball is named after the well-known Snowball Effect - the most common metaphoric illustration of positive feedback loops. The name came about as a result of looking for a water-based name, one that could thematically tie it back to its direct ancestor The Pool, a game by James V. West. Snowball is, and will always remain, free on the world wide web.
