Election Influence by 527’s: Browsable Map

I wanted to put out what’s been done so far on making yesterday’s post more interactive. There’s an awful lot that could be better about this map. Particularly legibility of labels in the core (it’s just too dense). If you want to see names, I suggest looking at the edges of the map.

Michael Bommarito is looking into better layouts for legibility. And while you are waiting, I suggest getting your fill of everything he’s ever written.

The data was collected from OpenSecrets.org.

[21-Apr-2009: You should see a flash image above, but am having an awful time getting this to render on a Mac.  Works great on Linux (Red Hat Enterprise Linux).]
