Phoenix Traffic Cams is a Flex application using traffic cam data from the Arizona Department of Transportation. This was one of my very first Flex projects and the application is still rocking after 4 years of service, it also happens to be the very first post for this blog. I am surprised that ADOT hasn’t asked to have the code or remove it entirely, it’s certainly better than there current interface.
Currently, only 5 of the 7 major freeways are implemented at this time. If you have ever visited the ADOT traffic cam site, you would know that the Flex application is a great improvement upon the looks and functionality of that site. We are basically doing a screen scrape to get the needed information, along with some XML to create the menu and list of cameras.
