The UK is gearing up for a general election in May. This means of course that there will be a lot of election maps coming out of the country in the next few months. First up is this map from the UK Parliament's own in-house magazine, The House.
The 50 Constituencies to Watch is an Esri Story Map examining the 50 'most interesting' marginal seats. All the UK constituencies are colored on the map using the colors of the political party of the sitting MP. As you scroll through the story map the map zooms to each of the 50 marginal seats in turn.
As each marginal constituency is highlighted on the map the map sidebar updates with information on the area represented, the main candidates and the majority held by the sitting MP / political party.
