ArcGIS Flex API Helps on China Earthquake Relief

Posted by Moxie Zhang | May 16, 2008 .

Update: I said it’s a peek and I meant it literally. So you can’t see it anymore. Just wait.

A devastating earthquake hit Si Chuan province, China on 5/12. To support the earthquake relief efforts I created a web site to collect all the resources for donations, China-Earthquake-Relief.com. I wanted to put a dynamic map on it to demonstrate the helps from all over the world. So I tried the ESRI ArcGIS Flex API, which was just released for closed technology review and testing. It’s a chance to give you a peek on the new Flex Map API around the block.

    Hi, I’m in Beijing China, and want to thank you very much for your efforts to encourage donations and understanding of the sad situation in China.

    You will read on our website about Sustainability, that this tragic event has only one good result: that people in China and around the world are learning what it takes to survive, recover and rebuild in any emegency – we must work together as ONE and respect Society, the Environment and the Economy. Ideally sharing the Attitude of “Peace Plus One” – that to achieve peace, each one of us must be involved in the solution, not the problem.

    The 3 finger Sustainability Symbol has many adopted meanings – prior to the earthquake we were encouraging people to think about the Green Olympics as the starting gun for a race to ecourage Chinese people to become DragonTHINKERS – thinking three ways to become a sustainable nation, with a Harmonious SOCIETY, Healthy ENVIRONMENT and Balanced ECONOMY.

    Now, with respect for the Earthquake tragedy, the 3 finger Sustainability Symbol represents: SOCIAL stability, ENVIRONMENTAL respect and ECONOMIC inclusion – something that all Chinese people and their friends around the world want for the people in Sichuan as they bury their dead and rebuild for a stronger, healthier more equitable future.

    Your Earthquake relief China site is fantastic – if there’s any chance you could help us put your map on our blog, or make our website as cool as yours, please let us know (we’re not technical at all..)

    Peace + One,
