Three priorities today:
- discuss project ideas
- using ARRA as a way of talking about projects
- taking next steps on the technology: Chap 8 on Monday
ClearMaps looks very promising for our work:
an ActionScript framework for interactive cartographic visualization. In addition to giving designers and developers more control over presentation the project aims to address some of the common technical challenges faced when building interactive, data driven maps for the web. ClearMaps is designed as a lightweight, flexible set of tools for building complex data visualizations. It is a framework not a plug-and-play component (though it could be a starting point for those wishing to make reusable tools).
I mentioned the Google Visualization API (aka Google Chart Tools) today.
A talk on ARRA: See http://bit.ly/opengovfbase.
The scope of the project I’d like to accomplish exceeds what is likely possible by May 8. A key question is to how to iteratively build this out? and how to iteratively put more details for the project?

What is the current status of the project to produce open ontologies for e-government (http://www.oegov.org/)?
Reflect on project ideas put forward and see how we can build off each other’s work? I should give feedback on the projects.
- After 6pm tonight, you should be able to login and post your project ideas. I’d like you to do so after you’ve taken in consideration the feedback I’ve provided you.
