    • Actionscript 3, Google Maps, and Geolocation Tutorial


      from Cartoon Smart Added 1,976 5 0

      This tutorial will show you how to import a Google Map into your Actionscript 3 Flash project, with the usual zoom and pan map functionality and various view settings (hyprid, satellite). This tutorial also teaches how to include the geolocation code if your Flash swf or app were run on a device that supported GPS. (on the iPhone, the Geolocation works fine, you'll see the latitude and longitude updating, but Google Maps doesn't show) More Actionscript 3 tutorials can be found at http://www.cartoonsmart.com/mobile_actionscript3.php5 or cartoonsmart.com/​ultimate_actionscript3.php5

        from JD Lasica Added 420 4 0

        During the Where 2.0 conference on March 31, 2010, I grabbed Dennis Crowley, CEO and co-founder of Foursquare, after his eye-opening keynote talk. If you haven't heard of Foursquare, you will -- they're on track to hit a million registered users around May 1. People in their 20s and 30s obsess over checking in at various locations to win digital badges. Crowley says Foursquare is about "trying to make the real world more playful (and) trying to reward people for doing interesting things."

          • Dalmo Cirne - Augmented Reality GEOlocation Math


            from John Wilker Added 123 4 0

            Augmented reality combined with modern smartphones equipped with cameras, magnetometers, and the ability to display maps on the screen make a powerful tool that can be used in a plethora of different applications. Here we are going to explain how to build one such kind of application. We will learn how to put geolocation based annotations on the screen, taking into account where a device is, which direction it is pointing, and how far place marks of interest are from it–know as geolocation augmented reality. We will explore the math that goes behind such application, and also learn about a reference implementation for iOS.

                    • Geofiction Project - Starting Off...


                      from Sebas van den Brink Added 556 3 3

                      This is the start of a new mapmaking project - one I intend to finish. This is merely a preview. I'll be making one more video, right up untill the finishing of this first portion. The skinny: Ankersfoort is based on cities found in the Netherlands - where I live. It's completely imaginary. There is a story behind it, an entire history - including one about the fictional country it's the capital of (Tatoningen -or, in english; Tatonia). I intend to go about this in A3 sized portions, extending the 1 million+ agglomoration with each new sheet. My goal is to make this the most detailed map of a fictional place. If I can implement the placement of roadsigns, I will. The geographical location of the city and the country behind it are the result of 'research' since I was six years old. Being completely addicted to maps and in particular city maps, I have been faced with the ever growing de-detailization (new word, there) of real, paper maps. This is a small protest against that. Great that Google Maps exists, but I feel for those who used to labour for months on the most intricate, most detailed of maps. This is a tribute aswell. Yes, it's made on the computer. But I'm not going to make it too easy on myself, now am I? :) Scale: 1 : 2000 Or: 5 centimeters = 100 meters Music: Chartreuse Cactus by I, Cactus Copyright © 2003 I, Cactus http://www.8bitpeoples.com
