GWT Code: gTraffic and Simile

Category: Google, GWT, Java, LiveEdit

Alistair Rutherford has released a couple of interesting pieces of functionality that revolve around GWT.

The first is the launch of a GWT version of a UK road traffic site.


The second is the launch of a GWT version of the Simile Timeline control, which is a GWT wrapper around the original API. This allows you to assemble a timeline using GWT java code.

You can check out the Google Code Project, and an example showing a timeline for stonehenge.

I have finally integrated the timeline control into the gTraffic site itself. Traffic incidents for a region are displayed in temporal relation to each other. The durations for incidents are colour coded for severity in the same fashion as the map and list. Selecting a timeline will open an info bubble with the details for the event. Clicking on the severity icon from the bubble will flip back to the corresponding marker on the map.

This uses the GWT wrapper I wrote for the Simile Timeline control.
