The Greater London Authority’s Intelligence Unit has for the first time made elections results for 2012 and the last three London mayoral elections and the 2012 London local elections available online and available to tablet users with data visualization software InstantAtlas.
The results of Mayoral, Assembly list, and Constituency member elections since 2000 are now available on the London Datastore (http://bit.ly/I8LgZa). Data can be viewed at three levels of geography – constituency, borough and ward.
As well as a Flash-based version of the report the results can be viewed in InstantAtlas’s new HTML5 template allowing non-Flash users the ability to interact with the results data across a range of devices such as iPads and other tablets. User will also be able to easily extract a link to the report and post on their own web sites.
- the winner in each area (the candidate or party with most votes). This excludes second preference votes in the Mayoral election;
- the winning majority (the highest number of votes minus the second highest number of votes); the percentage turnout figure (not available at ward level since the lowest geographical level that postal votes are registered is borough level);
- the percentage of votes for each of the major parties.
Gareth Piggott, Senior Research and Statistical Analyst, General Statistics Team said: “This is the first time data from all three elections and all three levels of geography have been brought together for analysis in a single place. To make it easier to identify patterns and trends in the data, the results are presented using Instant Atlas mapping software, which also includes a data table, bar chart, and trend chart.”
Please note – The InstantAtlas HTML5 Template is currently scheduled for release late May 2012. However the release date is subject to change.
