Bangalore – BBMP 2010 election results are out

BJP is the clear winner of 2010 BBMP elections. I expected it as BJP is the ruling party here in Karnataka. I should have thought about presenting results in a better way. But then it struck me only in the late noon. I could only create only a small mashup of election results on Google maps.

I got only couple of hours in the evening to work on it. Even though my colleagues [Uthara, Vandana, Anamika, Asim and IJ GIS interns, Love you guys.] helped me in putting up the result in JSON format. It's not complete yet. I will keep updating it until its complete. [I am using dropbox, so I just have to update the data on my computer and it gets updated on the site. Kewl++]. I can't guarantee for the sanity of the data. But go ahead and use it in your own mashup. Try give the credit if possible.

Please go have a look and I think it gives all the information you need, Let me know what do you think.

Congrats and all the best to BJP. I hope they will work towards better Bangalore :)

    This map is incredible! Quick question, where did you get the raw data to make these dat files? Also, do you have results for previous elections in this format as well?

    Hi Thejesh

    You have done a fantastic job tabulating the BBMP Poll results. Is there any chance of you having an excel sheet of the entire poll results. It will be good data to show Resident Welfare Associations to give them an idea of the number of votes required to win an elections. It may motivate them to field one of their members to stand for the corporation elections, thereby giving us citizens better candidates to choose from.
