Eurovision song contest voting oddities – interactive visualization

I couldn’t let a Eurovision weekend pass without doing some kind of visualization. I’ve always been fascinated by how the relationship between countries is manifested through the way that they vote for each other, regardless of the (relative) quality of the song. This darker the mark on this visualization, the more a country votes for the other. Hover over the intersection and you’ll see how much votes they gave each year, compared to the votes given by other countries.

You can read about how this is made over at my website. Here’s the interactive viz– hope you enjoy it.

(function() {
var po = document.createElement(‘script’); po.type = ‘text/javascript’; po.async = true;
po.src = ‘https://apis.google.com/js/plusone.js’;
var s = document.getElementsByTagName(‘script’)[0]; s.parentNode.insertBefore(po, s);
})();
