The trick was to separate the coordinate conversion into two steps: linearisation and linear interpolation… Read More »

Update: See the FlexMap demo. Combine all possible map sources. Update: Recently the performance with multiple layers was dramatically improved. Please see the multi-layer demo. For years we’ve been using a heavily modified Zoomify image component for our mapping products. We started off at flash6 with an as1-component, incrementally modified it to understand coordinates, added… Read More »
