UK Interactive General Election Map

We’ve highlighted some of the efforts to utilize web mapping platforms as a tool for organizing and presenting information about the US presidential election, but I just ran across a unique interactive web map for the UK’s current political makeup and what that would mean for the next General Election, put together for the Telegraph newspaper. Each UK constituency is represented by a hexagon that a user can click to bring up relevant information. The map also has some cool functionality, such as a swingometer, where you can use a slider bar to see what would happen if the vote swung in different directions.

Since elections are not held at fixed intervals, the next General Election may not be for awhile, but I think the map is worth checking out, if only to try out their unique interface.
