Some of my projects that aren’t in the blog.

NZ Election Visualisation 2017

Various visualisations of results from the 2017 general election in New Zealand - dumbbells of party gains/losses relative to the previous election, hexagonal cartograms of electorate results, and a foray into 3d hexagons. It’s also a nice use of flexdashboard.

Since the blog was having a snooze it got its own GitHub repository.

Single Transferable Voting Data

An attempt to collate STV voting data from NZ local body elections. Started, but something to come back to before the next elections.

NZ Election Visualisation 2014

Hexagonal cartograms of the 2014 general election results. This was before the blog and (my use of) GitHub, so I published them using Google Drive. Now that Google has killed that functionality they can live in perpetuity thanks to GitHub.
