US Election – Mapping Frenzy

Did anyone notice how many maps were being used during the election? I was watching the coverage of the election on NBC and noticed that, at almost any point during the night, there was a map of the US being shown. The election also provided people with a reason to be creating maps and data visualizations in the run up. The Sociable has reviewed a number of these apps and visualizations, calling this election “the web’s most interactive, real time, Presidential Election ever”, and it seems so! Check out the article below to play with some interesting maps (while they’re still up!).
