Examples of Maps/Navigation for 3D7

Some areas that 3-D map navigation can be useful:

Look to GIS for ideas and research...

Realistic 3-D portrayal of buildings on map:
1. Emergency response preparation -- for example fire fighters checking 3-D
maps of area as they approach a fire to decide best way to approach
2. Urban/transportation planning -- trouble shooting of designs, for
example: impact of project's height on surrounding neighborhood --
shadowing, sight line obstruction etc.

Impossible data entry control

In early interaction design sessions, my business partners are asking
for the following: I don't believe it exists.

1. Web Page with simple template allowing data entry.
2. Data must be able to be "pasted" in from other sources (most
likely from a spreadsheet)
3. Data will be variable (1 - N rows)
4. Data format will need to be validated on submission. (Two columns
of data will be allowed, one an identifier and the second a currency

I'm thinking of GDocs spreadsheet type functionality - but am not
aware of that type of control being commonly available.

As promised B&A article on "Foundations of Interaction Design"

Well it is finally published. I think 2 years ago I suggested this
idea to the B&A web site and they got back to me like 6 months later
and then it took me forever to actually write it. Well, here it is:

Marty Cagen Loves Us - UX Book club in SV


I am reading Inspired, and really pleasantly surprised about Marty Cagen's
passion for IxD, IA and UX in general. I decided I wanted to discuss that
with other UX peeps, and talk about why Product anad design are at each
other's throats so often.
