project description:
Election coverage is one of the most important responsibilities our national broadcaster has. The purpose of this map was to provide users a visual way to get an in-depth understanding of the national, provincial and local voting results in real-time during the election.
my role:
flash developmentI was working as a User Interface developer at CBC for this project. I worked with a design that was mostly finished but was missing some features and the code was in a real mess. I worked with news experts to develop interesting new features such as the Riding Tracker. I discarded the existing code and rewrote it from scratch using Actionscript 2.0 and object-oriented techniques. I also coded the map so that it could be easily used for provincial elections by simply editing an external configuration file.
