Show Your Vote for COP15

Show Your Vote

Justin Baird of Google Australia has been using his 20% time to develop an application to help visualise public support for next week's COP 15, the Climate Change Conference taking place in Copenhagen.

The application uses Google Maps to determine your location and to show the locations of all those who have voted to be included on the map. Show Your Vote has three tabs: Vote, Explore, and Learn. The Vote tab allows individuals and organisations to show their vote. The Explore tab displays individual votes aggregated by post code, and organizations by their own custom icons. The voting map is powered by the Google Maps API.

The application includes the option to display Show Your Vote on your own website or blog.
