Managers of the NC DETECT surveillance system wanted to augment standard tabular Web-based access with a Web-based spatial-temporal interface to allow users to see spatial and temporal characteristics of the surveillance data. Users need to see spatial and temporal patterns in the data to help make decisions about events that require further investigation. The innovative solution using Adobe® Flash® and Web services to integrate the mapping component with the backend database will be described in this paper.
