Scottish independence dashboard

To track the Scottish referendum we built a real-time data-visualisation dashboard showing results as it happened.

I built a node.js workflow that took data from a Google spreadsheet, parsed it into JSON and uploaded it to S3. The JSON data was polled in-browser and used to render the map and charts with D3. Journalists were able to update the data in the field which appeared on user’s screen within seconds.

The in-browser editor was used to create the website animations and tune shader settings.

Careful attention was given to the mobile design ensuring information was clearly laid out.
