AP and Google to offer Super Tuesday results via mapping applicationMarch 5, 2012
AP will supply the feed of vote results and its subscribers will be able to use Google Maps to display the totals on their websites and other platforms.
“We are excited about working with Google, which will make its industry-leading mapping application more easily available to AP's election subscribers,” said Brian Scanlon, director of AP Election Services. “Our subscribers have always had the option to create these maps on election night, but some of them faced cross-platform challenges. Now, we have a turnkey mapping solution. It’s an arrangement that not only makes sense for AP and Google, but also our customers and ultimately the end-user.”
"Google is excited to work with the Associated Press to help visualize and distribute the state-by-state results for Super Tuesday,” said Eric Hysen, of the Google Politics & Elections team. “Our Google results maps will show statewide and county level AP results in real-time at google.com/elections. AP subscribers will also be able to embed the results map on their own websites. We look forward to a successful and exciting Super Tuesday."
