A listicle by byetman:
Every election we see a bunch of red and blue patchwork maps, usually displayed as states are being called, and of course on the front page of the paper the next morning. This election however, interactive maps were used in a bunch of new ways to help display and query election results, exit polls, and projections. The volume of these tools was suprising, but here are a few that really wowed us…
The New York Times Election Results Map – link
Ability to visualize results data at the state and county level, as well as graduated symbols for county specific results. A very intuitive and well thought out interface with easy drilldown capabilities.
