Ok, so I’m trying to learn more about advanced data visualization with Flash and I’m trying to do it in the most object-oriented way possible. Flash seems eminently suited to this task and with the coming switch to Flash player 9 (once it hits above 80% version penetration) the power will be formidable.
So, I want to put together a bunch of links and experiences that will show how I did what I did and where I learned it.
Firstly, here are a few links that I’ve found:
Samuel Wan’s treemap visualizer: www.samuelwan.com/information/archives/cat_source_code_downloads.html
I’ve seen neurofuzzy’s php junk: www.neurofuzzy.net/2006/04/28/treemap-php-source-code/
and I’ve looked at a few of the java projects on the big U of Maryland site: www.cs.umd.edu/projects/hcil/treemap/
