A real-time map of Egypt Election data

Posted on Feb 22, 2013

Egypt Decides 2012 is a prototype demo of formhub.org and bamboo.io to create a real-time updating visualization of the results of an elections. Using data provided to us by the Rakeeb project, we have done the following:

  1. Made a formhub form that can be filled out by anyone to report election irregularities.

  2. Created a link to a bamboo dataset, and wrote indicators on the dataset. The indicator process is being made more user friendly at the time.
  3. This generates a real-time aggregated dataset of the indicators we have made, whenever data is submitted.
  4. Create a visualization of this real-time aggregated dataset in the browser using leaflet.js. Click on the image below to go to the real-time map.
