image processing with flex

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!

GeoIP tester

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 »

GeoFeeder Updates

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 »

flex: Making a percentage-sized VBox scroll

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.

Zoomify, Virtual Earth, Yahoo Maps, Google Maps, OpenStreetMap and Bluemarble all in one AS3 flex library

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 »
