Election visualization roundup

With the US presidential elections coming up tomorrow (exciting!), here is a little roundup of related visualizations and information graphics I enjoyed:


Palin sentence diagrams


Two projects from Pitch Interactive

Job arcs

Donations


Neoformixhas a couple of interesting visualizations, mostly relating to speech analysis. I like this one best, as it really tells a compact story:

Stream graph: Obama’s one week speech


The NY Times info design department does not cease to amaze me:

The measure of a president

Can a president tame the business cycle?

Naming names


More lexical analysis and the windbag index from Martin Krzywinski:

Lexical Analysis of 2008 US Presidential and Vice-Presidential Debates — who’s the Windbag?


Every moment now


Great discussion on proper plotting of the candidates’ tax plans (via Nature where I picked up the great term “couture visualization”)

The Visual Display of Political Information


Another vivid discussion on displaying swing state dynamics at eager eyes:

Swing states


And now, my dear American readers – get out and vote! May the youngest and best-looking win :)

    However, be wise in going down the route to buy twitter followers. So now that you know you can buy them, is is something that you have to do.

    In case you buy followers you are no longer responsible for the increase of them.
