A Signature Pad for Your HTML Forms

Posted · Category: BSD License, Forms

The Signature Pad jQuery plugin will transform an HTML form into a signature pad. The Signature Pad has two modes: TypeIt and DrawIt. In TypeIt mode the user’s signature is automatically generated as HTML text, styled with @font-face, from the input field where they type their name. In DrawIt mode the user is able to draw their signature on the canvas element.

The drawn signature is written out to a hidden input field as a JSON array using JSON.strinify(). Since the signature is saved as JSON it can be submitted as part of the form and kept on file. Using the JSON array, the signature can then be regenerated into the canvas element for display. Signature Pad works with both mouse and touch devices.

Tiled Based Vector & Raster Maps using SVG and Javascript

Posted · Category: BSD License, Maps

Polymaps is a display and interaction library for tile-based vector and raster maps using SVG and Javascript. Their intent is to provide a minimal, extensible, customizable, and free display library for discriminating designers and developers who want to use interactive maps in their own projects.

Polymaps provides speedy display of multi-zoom datasets over maps, and supports a variety of visual presentations for tiled vector data, in addition to the usual cartography from OpenStreetMap, CloudMade, Bing, and other providers of image-based web maps

Polymaps can load data at a full range of scales, it’s ideal for showing information from country level on down to states, cities, neighborhoods, and individual streets. Because Polymaps uses SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) to display information, you can use familiar, comfortable CSS rules to define the design of your data. And because Polymaps uses the well known spherical mercator tile format for its imagery and its data, publishing information is a snap.
