Someone posted an invitation to this forum on rabble, and I think I have a new favourite website.  As I've often told my long-suffering wife: I don't smoke, drink, gamble or chase women; I just like to make election maps.

My background is in Statistics and GIS, and I have worked at Elections Ontario and for two provincial electoral boundaries commissions.  I have also helped create maps for CTV and the Toronto Star.

This is what I like to do for fun.  I've been waiting for Elections Canada to release their digital boundary files and poll-by-poll results like a kid on Christmas Eve.  In addition to the last four federal elections, I have also created colour-coded poll maps for all recent provincial elections except PEI, Newfoundland and Labrador, and Saskatchewan (and I'm working on that one).

Thanks for your comments about the maps that I've posted on rabble.  I agree that the riding boundaries need to be fixed, and I'll try making a set of non-pdf maps with poll boundaries instead of the StatsCan street network file.  Here's a sample (Toronto Centre):

(I just got an error that newbies can't post links.  You'll have to replace the ampersands with slashes, and copy and paste this into a web browser  --  https:&&sites.google.com&site&krago123&maps&TorontoCentre.png  )

Thanks for the invite, and keep cool!

I'm pretty sure all those orange circles along the waterfront represent Olivia Chow supporters, not dedicated socialists!

Very nice! I shall add a link from my blog.

Sorry, Hatman, but the 'website' is actually just a File Cabinet that I use to store my maps so I can link to them on the web.  I didn't realize that anyone could access them!

Once I get a 'real' website going, I'll definitely send you the link.  Thanks.

Oh ok. I noticed you had some Manitoba provincial maps in there. Do you have the whole province? I'd like to see how some of the new ridings had voted.

Here is a map of Winnipeg showing the new riding boundaries overlaid on the poll-by-poll results from the 2007 provincial election: sites.google.com/site/krago124/maps/Winnipeg2007.png

Are there any other areas you're interested in?

Kingston would be very very interesting.

Here is Kingston and the Islands:



The rest will have to wait until I get back from the cottage.

Have a great weekend and keep cool!

I discovered a problem with the website that hosts all of my maps - it has no security!  So I will have to shut it down until I get it fixed early next week.

My apologies to everyone.  Have a good weekend.
