The Guardian's election visualization

I've been teaching all day today, but I tried to make time to enjoy some of the UK election visualizations that were published in the past hours. I really like The Guardian's one, which uses a lovely zoomable hexagon-based cartogram. Notice the drop-down menu on the upper right corner, which reveals multiple options worth exploring.

The BBC has done a nice job, as well.

Side note: It's true that some of these maps may remind you of Lisa Simpson!

  1. I agree. The Guardian went a little further than the rest. Lots to explore with their maps. I wonder if everyone will go for hexagonal cartograms next time as well...or maybe the fashion will have changed by then as they try and out-map each other?
