What Australians Think
During this year's Australian General Election the Australian Broadcasting Corporation launched the Vote Compass application to poll Australian voters on a number of questions about Australian life and the policies of the Australian political parties.
They received more than 1.4 million responses on a wide range of questions and have now released a Google Maps based visualization of Australians' answers on a wide range of socio-political questions. The ABC What Voters Think application uses Google Maps to present the results of the poll on a state-by-state basis.
The application allows users to select from the questions asked in the poll and to view a heat map of the answers given by states and mainland territory.
