A new storm tracker, courtesy of programers/designers John Balestrieri and Siobhan Dooley. Some little design glitches are still in the work.

This year was not the worst when it comes to fires in California. Typically, January marks the end of the fire season in the south. A good time to have a look back at the 2007 season, where fires were burning strong. This graphic has been made in Adobe Illustrator, ArcGIS, and Cinema 4D.
Dark areas show places burnt earlier in the year, red active fires. If you click the image, you can see another version of this graphic where I used Census data to show population density. Translated in spanish by Tina Garcia.

The Election night is traditionally a big night for the AP, primary provider of results data. The template for the print graphics are ready and tagged weeks in advance. Our key developer for that application is John Balestrieri who is our Election guru since 2002. Carrie Osgood was working with him this year on designing the hundreds of graphics moving before, after, and during the night. In attachment, this is the centerpiece graphic, a 6-col graphic I designed with them. Published also during the night was a popular Flash application. Troy Thibodeaux in charge of the back-end, Beth Davidz for the front-end. Of course, many other people contributed to the final results and thanks to their efforts, the night went on smoothly for on-line as well as for the newspapers print version.
