Anyone care to create some java visualiser thingymabob (technical term) that does a kind of time shift movie showing the composition of the DÃ¡il after every election we’ve had? It would be interesting to see the increase and decrease of parties and maybe graph these against certain world and local events.
Sure, I could do that. Seeing as we’ll have to do that for Vocal Voter, and while John is processing all the consituency data, I’ve nothing to do, I’d might as well hack it together now. I’ll just need to hunt down a layout of the Dail seats, knock out the code, and then get the data for the various elections and by-elections.

[…] Damien put the idea out there and Keith has quickly responded; check out this superb DÃ¡il seat visualiser which has a record of the composition of the Irish government from the 1st DÃ¡il of 1918 to today’s 29th incarnation. […]
