Why We Love It
When you see election results on a flat map, you can get a distorted view. In 2D, this map of the 2012 US presidential election is mostly red as Romney voters turned out in force in many areas with low populations. When we flip the map to 3D we see the blue blocks of Obama voters rise up from the map. We love that this map lets you control the view to get a more realistic sense of voter patterns.
