UK Boundary Changes on Google Maps
In the UK the Boundary Commissions for England, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales have published their recommendations for proposed changes to constituency boundaries.
The Guardian has created this Google Maps based visualisation to show the proposed new constituency boundaries and also a crude analysis of how the 2010 UK election results would have played out under the proposed changes.
The visualisation displays two synched Google Maps, the 2010 election results with the new boundaries are on the left map and the 2010 results with the existing boundaries are on the right.
