How mapping software was used to present up-to-the-minute results of the 2015 Catalan elections
The 2015 Catalan elections were seen by politicians as a tipping point in the future of Catalonia with 76 per cent of Catalonia’s 5.5 million voters going to the polls which was a record–breaking turnout.
After the votes were counted 62 seats in the Catalan parliament were won by Junts pel Si the main pro-independence party. Together with 10 seats won by a smaller nationalist party won pro-independence parties are now the biggest political force. The separatists say the victory means they have the backing of the people to form an independent Catalan state.
The election results were collected and presented as a dashboard by Esri Spain using InstantAtlas Dashboard Builder. Huffington Post ran an article highlighting the election map which were used to build a detailed picture of the results as they came in.
