While looking through old projects i found MeasureCam. It was meant to measure the archieved height in snowboard highjump contests. 🙂 If you have a camera attached, give it a go. It tries to find a moving object with a compact shape, then determines the centroid and finally does some calculations for apogee. Height determined!
As you might have noticed, i added a tiny map to the site. The flex app first gets your current location (via geoip from the server) and displays a red dot. Then it gets the locations of all the previous visitors and displays the green dots. On mouseover, the country and city (where available) are… Read More »
Now that my code signing certificate is “gone”, i have to start a new line of development for my “products”. First to go is GeoFeeder: After some interest from Switzerland, i decided it was time to do an update. More or less it’s just a move back to a self-signed certificate, a first port to… Read More »
After getting a new laptop and after upgrading to Windows7 (64-bit) i tried to migrate my current work-setup for eclipse and my workspaces to the new machine. Also upgraded to the newest eclipse version (3.6). Wasn’t really watching the install, but realized that the installer window went “black” after a while and the install went… Read More »
Adobe granted me a free code signing certificate (for 1 year): Things are a little less “red” now. The first mail stated i should go to Thawte (which i had used for webserver certs multiple times) and apply for a cert. Ok, setup an account, added all info, submitted on 21st of february. On 23rd… Read More »
If you’re using a VBox with a pixel height, it will scroll as expected. If you’re using a percentage sized VBox, it won’t scroll when it’s content grows in size: the scrollbars will be “pushed somewhere up the component hierarchy”. To make it scroll, set it’s minHeight=0. Found this here.
To test the recent changes to my maptech library and to feature the omnipresent Geo-RSS feeds, i put together a simple yet powerful (at least i hope so) GeoRSS viewer. Features renders Atom 1.0, RSS 1.0 and RSS 2.0 supports W3C, Simple and GML feeds implements RSS 2.0’s TTL BTW, please add all georss-feed-urls you… Read More »
Update: now includes Mars and Moon. After some thinking on how to integrate the code for linearly-projected maps (zoomify …) and mercator-projected maps (almost all others) into a single AS3 model, i found a very good, easy and straight-forward architecture. The trick was to separate the coordinate conversion into two steps: linearisation and linear interpolation… Read More »
Doing another viewer for a 200+ maps project, i discovered that combining overview and detail maps in the same view, rendered the system unusable with only a few layers. Naturally i did some optimizations on the layer drawing code. This resulted in a dramatical performance improvement when combining large overview maps with detail maps in… Read More »
Just a quick note: received a request to use Maptech on microscopic images. Threw together an adapted client. The original demo is no longer available. Please see the enhanced demo. A server-side script scans for directories holding zoomify images, sorts them lexically and adds then to the client in sort order. Zoomify’s ImageProperties.xml is extended… Read More »
