Piracy Watch in VFX4.5
We at IDV Solutions have just released the first of a series of demos of Visual Fusion Experience (VFX 4.5 to drop November 10); this one focuses on piracy data. Every week, the U.S. National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (formerly NIMA and more formerly Defense Mapping) releases reports of "anti shipping activity" in an effort to increase awareness and prevent future events of hostile activity. Oh, and if you have the time, read some of the incident descriptions…wow.
The map and the timeline work together to set the rules of what data will appear. Zoom in to a smaller geographic location to reduce the points in the timeline. Likewise, zooming in on a smaller time range will reduce the points you see on the map. More on this AND relationship and others (like OR) here.
Ok, have at it. My best friend’s sister’s boyfriend’s brother’s girlfriend heard from this guy who knows this kid who’s going with the girl who thinks you’ll find it pretty fun. Tell us what you think!
