New Danish Parliament on Google Maps
Microformats.dk has created a simple visualisation of the new members of the Danish parliament following the general election on the 15th September.
Borgen 2011 uses the Google Maps API with an image of the country's members of parliament. Using the CASA Image Cutter the photograph was turned into map tiles and mapped with the Google Maps API.
Users can now zoom in on the image and view individual MP's. The visualisation could be made even more interactive by adding event listeners to the map, so that when a user clicked on an individual MP's image an information window opened with biographical details.
