App4 Week 4

I wanted to have a play with Google Earth...

So my idea was to get a dataset of postcodes and display it on a webpage so that users didn't have to have the google earth application.

I then wanted users to be able to search for a location and find the postcode for that location by clicking on the map.

All working!

Next I want to add interactivity to it, because I need to be able to have the user provide some sort of service...e.g crowdsourcing information.

App 3 Week 3

Ok so I was sick for ages, like for half this week which made it a bit hard to make an app!

So this is my app created in completely one day - from concept to rollout..

I had to go with something that would be easy and quick but I still wanted it to be useful and look ok! :P

It's called Next Stop NSW - It helps you find out how long you have to live, and what you should do before you die in NSW! :p

Here it is:

App My State

I submitted an idea for the App My State comp which was officially announced Friday.

You can submit apps or ideas.

This comp also differs from Mashup Australia and Apps4nsw because it's not a mashup don't even need to use a dataset, you just need to build or suggest an application.

If you would like to see my idea: Pick & Mix Vic Data you can visit the App My State ideas entry page located here.

Happy Innovating!

I love this video from TED 2010.
Before I watched it I read that the audience had drew gasps!
I was excited and I thought maybe it would be something related to imagery or interactivity of placemarkers...but I was really suprised when I saw that it was related to video and in particular web cams! :D We were just speaking the other day saying that web cams really haven't peaked yet... this awesome demo shows how you can interact with a map in real time! :D
I think that is such a fantastic space to be working in:

Ideas for this
# Ask a store assistant questions
#Visit a library
# Internet tours
# Participate in a gym session
# Basically anything you do in real life would be able to happen through bing maps..that's pretty amazing and the technology already! :D

Love augmented reality!
