Visualising Advocacy — mapping advocacy around campaigns using free tools and open data

This morning, Beth and I ran a session at the Engaging Networks Community Conference on Visualising Advocacy. In the session, we looked at a number of methods for mapping levels of advocacy around individual campaigns using free online tools and open data. The methods presented ranged from quick-and-dirty (e.g. using Google Fusion Tables) which allow campaign managers to get a quick overview of the impact of their campaigns, to more intricate and sophisticated methods, for the creation of interactive, bespoke maps of activity (e.g. using Google Refine and TileMill).

For anyone interested, here’s our slide deck:

We hope this can equip campaigners with some easy-to-use tools to get more value from their campaign data, and so we’d love to hear back from anyone who actually puts this stuff to good use in their day-to-day work. So, please let us know in the comments below…
