Adventures in Cartography


It has been about 4 and a half years since I posted anything here but, typically, a dearth of posts means a influx of exciting projects here at IDV.  Here is a list of the hottest things we’ve been working on this month (a.k.a., my excuse):

  • An alert management system to filter, escalate, and ideally prevent a doomsday scenario in one of the world’s largest metropolitan areas.
  • An executive research dashboard to provide a geographic means of unifying and presenting specific business data, community involvement, political representation, and populace demographics to quickly compile a background report for more confident, better informed executive visits.
  • An interface to navigate the complex world of contractual workflows and provider relationships in the Healthcare industry using geography as the primary metaphor.
  • A silverlight map interface to provide first and second responders access to post-Hurricane Ike reconnaissance imagery in order to prioritize relief efforts by identifying areas of greatest impact.
  • A Spatial Wiki product where users can go nuts creating and editing a world of geographic data.
  • A lightweight GIS editor used by traveling technicians to sketch fiber optic network possibilities in the field.
  • A market optimization tool for a database marketing division to visually identify areas of marketing best fit and areas where opportunities for gain are strong by visually slicing and dicing the thematic map elements along a correlation scatterplot.
  • A time series platform for a pharmaceutical company to track prescription patterns along time-space in order to recognize trends and proactively identify areas of focus.
