Flash RSS Feed Representation 2

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!

  • On a different note, love the new site design. The header is great!

    • Thanks! Only realised last night the short-links were not working :S
      So I am slowly getting there – More to come.

    Not sure if you are planning on using this for your ISAD334 coursework but make sure you link it in with literature if you do.

    • Na, it’s for a different module – Sorry for the confusion. If you hover your mouse over Coursework at the top of this screen, you will see ISAD334 in the drop-down list – Click on that.
