Indy and friends win with Flash
One on the main reasons to stop by the U of Redlands booths, besides the general heckling, is to catch up with Indy who is a PhD student at UCSB. We met her a couple of years ago at the ESRIUC where she turned the camera around on us for a video she was using in a class she was TAing. Apparently, our friend Indy along with Kailen Wright and Chris Thilgen recently won ‘best student app’ at FlashCamp an Adobe CS4 event at the San Francisco Adobe offices. Their app was, of course, geospatial in nature and looked to the election for inspiration. The result was a flash map that shows the way states are leaning in polls and cartogram version of the states based on electoral votes. For a weekend project it is fun visualization of the information. Congrats to Indy and team for their victory and bringing the spatial to FlashCamp!
