[tdwg] Interesting example of tree navigation

Indeed, this sort of Flash/Flex-based application is on the table...but, I
find this a bit like mystery meat navigation. More specifically, I have been
in touch with developers of Mindomo (http://www.mindomo.com) for use in
EoL's WorkBench environment using Adobe's AIR for a desktop/web hybrid. Mind
maps, tied down with Semantic Web technologies like that used in MindRaider
(http://mindraider.sourceforge.net/index.html) are what I'm aiming for.

WOW!!  Very slick!!!  EoL should be all over this!


I would say the whole page is a useful model -- not just the tree part (by
which I assume you meant the "Project Process" tile). The whole approach to
organizing and presenting (i.e., zoom & pan) information is wonderful!  It
took a little "getting-used-to", but once I got the hang of it, I really
liked it.


I gather that it's Flash? (I mean in the Macromedia/Adobe sense ... I
already know it's "Flash" in the slang sense.)


A little sluggish -- but well worth it, I think.

This is not only a fascinating website in general, but in one spot has a
quite novel - not perfect, but nicely innovative - interaction model for a
tree of information.  Does a decent job of both showing the overview of
information available and offering more information at various levels, in
context, in response to interaction.
