This project was another fantastic visualisation for David McCandless of informationisbeautiful.
It is the second visualisation we have worked on, and it was even more fun than the first.
The data is coming in live (as a CSV) from a Google Docs Spreadsheet http://bit.ly/tonsofcarbon.
The application is built in Flash using ActionScript 3.0 and the PureMVC framework, with SWFAddress and a small amount of XML.
You can read more about this project on David’s great blog here:
This site is built using the PureMVC framework (AS3.0) and is XML driven to support multiple languages. This is the site I wrote the dynamic text around an ellipse code for, as it is used for the range menu.
It is a great looking site with some nice water and light effects going on in the background.
It has been a while since I have been able to update this blog and in that time I have completed about 5 different sites at multiple agencies. I am going to make an effort to get them all up here, but it has been hard to keep track of what has gone live and what is still being deployed. The first small site that is actually live is HP Make it big.
This is built to support multiple European languages and is driven by XML.
This site for Nissan finally launched last week almost 4 months after I completed the build. It is AS3 and uses the PureMVC framework. It is to help customers compare the two different Qashqai models and their respective features. I really like the way the paint splashes around in this campaign.
I’ve been a long-time admirer of the work of David McCandless (http://www.informationisbeautiful.net/), and I finally had the chance to build one of his infographics in Flash. The project displays projected CO2 emissions from car journeys on Memorial Day across America. You can choose between 3 region groupings and 3 fuel types. The numbers involved are mind-boggling!
