While Lukas Appelhans and I were sharing a flat on Barcelona, we started to think on projects we could do together. As the elections approached, it seemed handy to create a good map to visualize the results.
The map is created with SVG and D3, getting the results from a C++ parser of the government data.
I was involved in the overall design, writing a series of bash scripts that smashed the country shapefiles together. The result: a (very) simplified TopoJSON with more than 8.000 cities.
For the regional election we had to create a different layout. We opted for a long scroll with a fixed header, which allowed us to have full width maps. Each region (15 on this election) had a different website to get the data, with a separate login. It was a total mess.
Tools: D3.js, GDAL, TopoJSON, Bash scripting, jQuery, Bootstrap and SASS.
