General election 2010

Here in the UK we have just been through (and, at the time of writing, are still enduring) a general election. This presents us with some fantastic datasets. The first place I turn to is the Guardian Data Store, and they provided this, which allowed me to create Election results dashboard below.

I won’t comment much on it, but it does utilise three tricks that I hope to explore and explain in the coming weeks:

  • Hyperlinks on sheets
  • Conditional formatting on tooltips
  • Positioning the text label in the bars

Enjoy the viz, and please post and comments below.
