I need a poll-by-poll map of a Ontario provincial riding that shows colour-coded results.

For example, each poll should be either dark blue (large Conservative win), light blue (narrower Conservative win), light red (narrow Liberal win), dark red (large Liberal win), light orange (narrow NDP win) etc. etc.

The percentage vote of the winner, and the voter turnout percentage should also be shown in each poll

I am unfamiliar with the mechanics of solving this problem, but I suspect it has something to do with using these files to create the map: http://www.elections.on.ca/en-CA/Tools/ElectoralDistricts/LimitedUseDataProductLicenceAgreement.htm

And this data to determine the winner/colour of each poll: http://www.wemakevotingeasy.ca/media/EO_Site/unofficial_244/results_2011csv.zip

Then I'm guessing I'd want to be able to view the maps in something like this: http://www.giscloud.com/


Can pay in BTC or USD.

No GIS pros on here?

Can anyone tell me if I'm at least headed in the right direction.

You've got the right idea, there's just a wealth of data in that election results file that would take a bit of time to compile into something usable for a map.

I'd be confident making jpgs of the maps you needed, but I'm only slightly familiar with the web based gis mapping you linked.

I'd be glad to take a look at doing this for you if you want to discuss timeframe/budget issues.

I could do this for you, but you'd need to provide the data sources.  If you got that, I can do the rest.

The only data I have is that linked to in the OP.  Actually it would be a subset of that data, as I'm just looking for one electoral district to be done, not all 107.

What other data would you need?
