Voters are going to the polls today in Western Australia today – and those of us not in WA are simply left waiting until we have some results later tonight.
In the meantime I’ve been learning how to use a few new tools to display data, one of which is a Google Fusion Table.
As an example, I made this map showing NSW federal electorates. The colours show the relative vote for the Greens in the Senate, and if you click on each seat it shows the vote for the major parties and the Greens in that electorate for the Senate.
I’ll be back from 9pm Sydney time (6pm Perth time) tonight covering the election results.
