2005 Party Vote per rightwing party

Here's some maps created using the E9 data released by Elections NZ, and hopefully the 2005 electorate boundaries (the filename says 2002, but it includes some 2005 calculations...). The electorate boundaries file says the target population for each electorate was 54,288.

Key: 2005 party votes per general electorate for the National Party. 15 equal interval colour graduations.

Key: 2005 party votes per general electorate for the ACT Party. 5 equal interval colour graduations.

If anyone is interested, I'll do the urban areas and centrist and leftwing parties later. The GIS software I'm using is capable of doing field calculations and joins, so many different visualisations are possible.

What is the software used?

Also, most electoral boundaries didn't change significantly between 2002 and 2005, mainly just to ensure that each electorate was within +/-5% of the target.

ArcView GIS 3.3. It can do all the useful shapefile stuff, but its output isn't so pretty. And of course - crappy 3D support.

ArcGIS 9 is too expensive for me, especially considering you need the very costly extensions to do anything worthwhile.

Haven't had a change to try that script yet sorry - been away from my normal PC and the Tincan (test WordPress install).

That's cool, no rush. I should probably have tried that script on one of my computers. I'm pretty sure I've got a test wordpress setup on one of them (to figure out how it works).
