Senegal Elections on Google Maps
OneWorld pioneer internet and mobile phone applications designed to improve the life opportunities of the world's poorest people. Senegal-Scrutin 2012 was created by OneWorld to help monitor the government elections in Senegal.
Yesterday more than 500 election monitors were stationed at over 1,500 polling booths across the country, and reported back their findings. These reports were then mapped in real-time on the Senegal-Scrutin 2012 Google Map. Red markers on the map indicate where at least one adverse report was made by the monitors and the green markers indicate where only favourable reports were submitted.
The real-time election monitoring map will be deployed again on March 11th for the second-round of the vote.
