Much like the Flash product I and a classmate created to represent earthquake data (http://ckhatton.com/i/d), I decided to create another one to suit the assignment of a different module. The task was to create a product that would grab information or communication with another computer via WAN i.e. Such as the Internet.
I had a better understanding of the Actionscript used to program in Flash – So I could really play with it. It ran on the same principle, of reading through the XML RSS feed data.
- The horizontal green line = Depth
- The breadth of green line shake = Earthquake Magnitude
I wanted to add a physics engine to it, so that blocks could shake side-to-side depending on the magnitude of the earthquake.
I looked into Box2D for Flash… http://box2dflash.sourceforge.net/
There is a Java version… http://gwtbox2d.appspot.com/ (You will need a HTML5 compatible browser)
I urge you to check out both links… they are interactive demos!
