Eurovision Voting Balance
Together with Onur Sönmez Jona visualized the results of the Eurovision Song Contest on an interactive map. The visualization shows the voting behaviour difference between the selected judges and the public telephone voting in Eurovision Song Contest 2014 focusing on the Austrian performance by Conchita Wurst. For instance the map above reveals that despite the extremely high popularity of Conchita Wurst in the public of Armenia (rank 2 in the televoting) the jury decided to rank Austria at 22nd place, which resulted in the combined 14th rank and no points for Austria. Digging deeper into the data you can see very similar voting behaviours repeated in Azerbaijan, Belarus, Germany, etc.
