Sweet. Hopefully your elections will go smoother than in the states. ;-) I really like
the application in general- election results. I assume this will have a limited shelf so
it's not worth adding to the demo page.

I know you were doing some stress testing. How'd that come out?


Yes, the URL parameter switching is real handy. Use it all the time myself.

I just wanted to give everyone a heads-up.

I've implemented a new mapping interface using Mapserver CGI to provide live
up to the minute mapping of our federal election results as they come in.
(Canadian Federal Election).

You will be able to find a link here: 

Click on Election 2000 Mapping.

There currently are only Screen-Shots, the interface will go live sometime
this afternoon, with data showing up sometime shortly after 10pm EST.

Feedback is most welcome of course !

Sorry I've been so quiet lately, been working on this non-stop for a while.

Hopefully I'll get back into the swing of things soon now (Such as the
documentation project).

And Stephen, that thing where you can set almost any Mapfile paramter with a
structured URL parameter (map_layer_???) is very handy :)
Great for implementing bi-lingual interfaces.
