Discovery Channel recently released Earth Live, a 3D Rich Internet Application that can be used to interact with climate data and more. The site is intuitive, engaging, and allows contributors to post stories to enhance the data collected from the NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) and NASA. It’s a cool app. But what I like most about it is that it looks like the type of application that would have been built in Flash Authoring. And yet it was built in Flex. It’s always amazing to see what talented individuals do with our tools and technologies.
