"Not just a number"

This community journalism project from the Oakland Tribune and combines a variety of "mini" projects produced with Flash, Photoshop, audio, video, mapping software, story text, blogs... The image above is a detail from an interactive crime map and it's really the heart of the project. Mouseover the map (the real one, not just the reproduced image) and popups will offer information about the person -- the victim -- behind the number. Ryan Sholing gives a good writeup/analysis to this on his blog, Invisible Inkling, and the creators added comments explaining how they did it.
