SpatialKey - Flash Mapping...

A colleague sent me a link to a beta Flash based mapping tool called SpatialKey from Universal Mind. It's pretty slick with timelines, heatmaps, animation, filters, and easy data loading from CSV. They have an enterprise angle as well with a Java server side application. It reminds me a little bit of the tools that could build something like Trulia Hindsight or the London Transit slider maps which were built by Stamen. Now if I could just find a way to create deep links into it...or is that called Flex?

I don't believe it is associated with SpatialKey, but the Province of Flevoland in Holland has a very cool flash-based page featuring historical aerial photography. You can check it out here: http://historische-luchtfoto.flevoland.nl/
A great method for visualizing change over time.

ryan: That's really cool- it also is a neat way of showing the evolution of imagery data quality over time.
