Speaking of polls
Now that we're talking about polls and maps and such (see previous post), it's probably worth posting some cool maps from the the Martin Prosperity Institute, in a report on Toronto's Cultural Sector. I came across them yesterday on this blog, which says the report is due to be considered this week at Toronto City Hall. And I thought it might be interesting to compare culture to politics, map-wise.
Have some fun with these maps... I'd be curious to hear people's reactions. I also can't wait to compare them to tomorrow's provincial election-results maps. (You'll need to click on the links, not the maps, to see them in better detail, by the way.)
Map #1 (pg. 63) from the Martin Prosperity Institute: the "Cultural Locations Index," which measures the intensity of cultural occupations and facilities within the GTA.
Map #2, also from the Institute, a visual depiction of where creative folks live and work within the GTA. (pg 64)
Map #3, courtesy of torontoist.com, a map of the Toronto mayoralty results last year:
And finally, a colourful map of the federal election results, which, I stress, is borrowed twice -- from the website of the excellent Canadian Election Atlas, which gives credit for this image to Shilly, of the U.S. Election Atlas Forum. (It is indeed a very pretty map.)
Thoughts, conclusions, anyone, after looking at the four depictions of politics and culture?
