These are experimental visualisations of work in progress. They may change or be removed. (For this reason, I do not recommend referencing them in academic publications!)
Unless stated otherwise, the visualisations all use open source dataviz tools, the code/data is licensed as CC-BY-SA and you're welcome to copy and re-use under the terms of that licence.
I've started moving away from D3-based visualisations to make more use of R. I'm finding it better suited to my data workflows and easier to work with.

Note: these charts use reworked versions of the public release files, from which marginal annotations etc that are not part of the body of the petition have been trimmed. May be slow to load.
