News organizations are pulling out some special efforts for election night. Here's a handful of the coolest projects we've seen.
The WNYC map
"We knew that The New York Times, L.A. Times, The Chicago Tribune -- everybody would be doing the red-blue map," John Keefe, Senior Editor for Data News & Journalism Technology at WNYC, told me Tuesday night. "We thought, what can we offer that would be different?"
The result was this map, which categorizes the vote results by the "community types" designated by the Patchwork Nation project. So at a glance you can see how communities with labels like "military bastions," "monied 'burbs," and "tractor country" are voting.
