DIGITAL DASHBOARDING

On election day 2008, CNN televised graphics prepared by N Space showing the results of a national voter hotline. N Space's web platform served as the project research hub for CNN editors, legal advocates and operators who classified voter complaints into over 90 categories. During the day, over 50,000 voice messages were processed and N Space provided live data and analysis feeds to CNN, CNN.com, and to John King's Magic Wall.

DATA MINING & ANALYSIS

N Space worked with Waste Management's Security and Real Estate departments to determine which of their thousands of facilites were the most valued and at the highest risk (probabilistic risk assessment using a weighted linear classification model). N Space geographically linked 5 previously disconnected databases to allow managers to do a comprehensive assessment at the facility level.  We also developed a street level crime map to offset costly commercial crime reporting.

APPLICATION DEVELOPMENT

N Space is the sole developer of AlignStar Online, a web companion product to TTG Incorporated's AlignStar desktop business mapping software, which is used for sales and marketing analysis, territory design and optimization. AlignStar Online employs web services that integrate a tiled national street level mapping interface with a remote central database allowing managers in the field to analyze and edit their territories visually. The multi-threaded application was optimized to minimize server traffic without impacting the user interactive experience.

LOCATION BASED SERVICES

Over 2,000,000 voters have located their polling place by using N Space's online poll locater which is part of the League of Women Voters Vote411.org suite of voter services. Powered by Yahoo, N Space worked with Yahoo engineers to optimize the performance of database transactions for heavy election day traffic, and worked with InfoVoter Technologies to prep polling place data state by state for national coverage.
