Election Map Project using JavaScript and Mapbox Free Source Code

Language

Introduction

This simple project is entitled Election Map Site. This is a web-based application project developed in HTMLCSS, and JavaScript. This simple site provides an online platform where the voters or any individuals can check the electoral votes in a country. The application also helps to determine who wins in each region of the country. It was developed using Mapbox for the map and Bootstrap Framework for the user interface. It consists of simple and user-friendly features and functionalities.

About the Election Map Site

I developed this project using the following:

  • HTML
  • CSS
  • JavaScript
  • jQuery
  • Bootstrap
  • Mapbox

This Election Map Site project does not require any user registration or login. This project is for educational and demo purposes only. The site displays a panel that shows the list of the candidate and the total number of votes. Also, users can explore the number of votes of the candidates per the country's region. The user can simply click the area of the region on the map and the results and information will be shown in the upper right side panel of the map. On this site, you can also determine easily the candidate that gains the highest votes in each region by the color-filled each region.

For demo purposes only, I also added an Update Function in each region result to show you how the site changes when the data updates.

The source code was developed only for educational purposes only. You can download the source code for free and modify it the way you wanted.
