Biography: Nael Shiab is a data journalist for CBC/Radio-Canada. He specializes in the analysis of large volumes of data and 3D interactive data visualizations.
The results of Canadian general elections are usually available during the night. We decided to create a unique 3D project to explain the results to our readers who would check the news in the morning.
Many readers wrote to us saying how much they enjoyed their experience. It’s difficult to propose something different than usual for topics that keep recurring. Some expectations need to be fulfilled, especially for events of importance like elections. For these projects, the space to innovate is narrow. But based on the readers’ feedback, we succeeded in presenting electoral results on a map in a new and engaging manner with this project.
