That's nothing really compared to most provinces.

Thanks! What I'm really cursing is that after finishing this I went looking for vote totals by riding to create a spreadsheet and vote maps, and while doing that I stumbled across an Elections Nova Scotia PDF map of the whole province, coloured by vote winner. Would have been a heck of a lot easier if I'd found that six-eight months ago when I started on this!

Edit: Here is the page showing official results over the past few elections, including the PDF map to which I referred.

Found a small error in the Argyle/Yarmouth boundary, which is now fixed. If you've downloaded the blank map from the gallery to save your own copy, you may want to re-download it and save over the earlier version.

Here is the keymap, with the ridings each having their own colour, plus numbered (again, bigger version in the gallery):

I was originally not going to do federal maps for Australia, because there's a redistribution in at least one state after every election, but I decided that if I use the same base map, I really only have to change the states that actually have had a redistribution since the last election, which isn't quite so difficult. As it turned out, it wasn't quite as simple as I expected - redistribution maps might have different scales, or from a slightly different angle, which can make things a bit more complicated. Consequently, in some cases, the maps are more "stylistic" than accurate in some places, but I think they'll do. In the 2001 map, two Brisbane electorates cross the Brisbane River (Brisbane and Ryan). I've put the River on, making two small areas south of the river that are part of the electorate which is predominantly north of the river... I might change that to remove the river, but I'll leave it in for now. In 2004, only Ryan crossed the river, and I removed that part of the river (mainly because it was an even smaller area), but by 2007, no Brisbane-based electorate crossed the river (further out, they may have, but the river is quite narrow by that point).

I've also done 2PP and 2PP swing maps, plus also notional margins in states undergoing a redistribution (as calculated by Antony Green). Those maps are in the International Gallery. The blank maps are in the Blank Maps Gallery (and also edited into my post on the first page).

Seems like Sydney is the densest city in Australia?

It's certainly the largest, but I'm not certain about the densest. I think the densest part of Australia is around Kings Cross in Sydney, but inner-city Melbourne around Southbank is also pretty dense, possibly just as dense a inner-city Sydney. It may appear more dense on the map because the insert scales vary. Because the Sydney map stretches so far along the coast, from Woolloongong to Newcastle, the scale is considerably smaller than the Melbourne inset. This may give the appearance of Sydney being twice as dense a Melbourne, whereas they're probably fairly similar in that respect. They both have large built-up inner-city suburbs which are much more substantial than those of the other capitals.

Excellent!

There's such an obvious joke to make here, but I shall refrain.
