btw, I picked up Goguel's atlas of sorts of elections between 1871 and 1956. Anybody up for some old maps?

Always.

Heh, your description made me go "wait a sec", look at the key, and laugh hard. I tend to automatically assume that red means decline on maps like that... Cheesy

I've always considered that, in a map, increase should be signified by reddish colors and decline by blueish color. I don't get why people tend to assume the opposite. I find it logical that hot colors are something positive and cold colors something negative.

Meh, in all my cases the colours are pretty ideological. In an FN change map, I'd use shades of brown for an increase and blue for a decrease. In a UMP change map, I'm pretty sure I'd use red to show decrease.

Great work, Shilly. Soon we'll have full commune maps of both the 2002 and 2007 first rounds. Wink

Also, how are you indicating ties on your map?

I'm using stripes for ties, but they don't show up well on this map, due to the compression.

OK, I got the PNG's size low enough to upload to the gallery. I've updated my previous post to show the new cleaner looking map, so check it out.

Thanks for that. But I still don't see any striped communes.

Yeah, I figured that might be the reason. It does make sense, of course, and I've seen it done before.

My greatest triumph as a political cartographer: the first complete map of France's communes in Atlas color scale (5%). Color-striping for tied communes.

Holy crap! Thanks a billion for that. Fascinating map - I hope a 2012 version (even more interesting...) is forthcoming Wink

But how am I suppose to live up to those standards? Might as well give up with my puny little constituency maps!

Yet there's still much room for improvement my friend.

What's grey? What's black? (Tie and three-way tie?) Where are the Pacific islands, the smaller Atlantic islands, the French abroad?

EDIT: The "grey" is actually the lightest Le Pen shade. My bad.

Indeed. The pinker, the better ! Wink

So from making that humungo-map, here's a little report on who won what in terms of communes:

Sarkozy: about 26,000 communes.
Royal: about 8,000 communes.
Bayrou: about 1,000 communes.
Le Pen: about 500 communes.
Besancenot: 0 communes. Tied for lead in two very small communes.
de Villiers: 4 communes. One in Vendee, one in Indre, two in Ardeche. Tied in three or four more.
Buffet: 13 communes. One each in Drome, Gard, Haute-Garonne, Pyrenees-Orientales, Ariege and Nord. Three in Correze and four in Corsica. Ties in two or three more, including one in Allier.
Voynet: 1 commune: Joucou in Aude (it's tiny). No ties.
Laguiller: 0 communes - the only candidate not to win or tie in any.
Bove: 4 communes. One each in Lozere, Drome, Hautes-Alpes and Ariege. Tied in one or two more.
Nihous: 2 communes. One in Manche, one in Herault of all places. I think he also managed a four way tie somewhere in Hautes-Pyrenees by winning two votes. LOL, rural France.
Schivardi: 1 commune: Mailhac in Aude, of course, where he's the mayor. No ties.
