Treemap visualization of Results of 2009 General Elections of India

Recently I am interested in various visualization techniques. One of the technique that I find very interesting is 'Treemaps'. While studying treemaps, I found excellent Javascript visualization library "The Javascript Information Visualization Toolkit" .

Using the treemap component from TheJIT and data from Election Commision's site, I made a treemap visualization of results of 2009 general elections of India. This representation gives an overview of elections results across states, coalitions and parties compared to results of 2004 elections.

The visualization is published on my website.
