LA Times: interactive election map and multimedia tribute to fallen soldiers

The LA Times has created two great interactive features online: the first allows users to see different voting outcomes of November’s presidential election on a map of the US.

Using data from the 2004 election, states on the map can be assigned to either Obama or McCain, showing users how a winning these constituencies will affect the candidates’ chances overall.

The second marks the Californian soldiers who have lost their lives in the Iraq conflict.

Video, image galleries and a searchable database of soldiers’ profiles have been created, accompanied by moving text tributes from family members
