My latest code has revealed data in the form of new polygons and shapefiles. Fascinating stuff, and here’s an example…

Ok, I’ll try to explain what this is… When Suhck grabs a photo from Flickr it also extracts a powerful code from their database called the woeid which stands for “where on earth id”. This is a unique universal code applied to millions of places around the world. Both Flickr and Yahoo maintain data about this location code and I’m accessing both API’s (Application Programming Interfaces) to get Yahoo’s bounding box, along with Flickr’s polyline data, and presenting them on a Google map. The arrow represents the true point at which the photo was taken. When you click on the thumbnail you’re taken to one of my other apps (fkscan) which allows you to view all of the photos belonging to that photographer. Make sense?

    You should be working for a data company. You understand all these things I don’t and I don’t think I could think of anything to use it for. How ever it is very interesting. The things you can make a computer do. Wow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Keep up the good work.

    A data bus is a computer subsystem that allows for the transferring of data from one component to another on a motherboard or system board, or between two computers. I drive a bus so I’m sorta there…

    I think I get the bus thing. One person one location to the next location and next person to location and so on until quitting time.
