Tom Beard has put together this interface for Maps of voting in Wellington. He explains at the link what the different shades mean but basically the more blue it is the more votes for National/ACT/United Future and the more red it is the more votes for Labour/Greens/Progressive.

I’d love to see this done nationwide!

    Incredibly instructive – and much more meaningful than the rather pointless ones being run by the Herald?

    Now overlay that with the some key demographics like percentage of public servants and percentage unemployed and you’d have some interesting viewing.

    Also, oddly, looking at this map made Iron Maiden’s classic, “Run to the Hills”, start reverberating in my cranium.

    Now we know which streets will have their electricity and water turned off!

    Approximate correlation to what I’d guess house prices are in those areas.

    this is fantastic stuff but I would really like to have a go in Arc using a density kernel…if you look at this type of analysis for say the American elections its really interesting…I did an analysis like this for Texas after the 2004 election and its fascinating to see the way it suddenly goes from red to deep purple – with bright blue spots in Austin ;)…maybe a project to work on…
