I’m reaching out for help on this. We have a very limited time frame to get this done, so any help you can give is greatly appreciated! There’s a bit to it, so I’m going to try to make this post easy to read.
We’ve gotten the word that we need to be showing vote totals (for all reporting precincts) for each contest. Any idea how we do this?
What we need to include:
I’m hoping to do this in the Map Series story map template, and would like it to be in the side panel if possible. See below for an example. We want this to update whenever we update the data.
Below is our feature class table. We will have vote totals (Total Ballots field) coming in by precinct on election night, but currently we don’t have a field totaling those up.
We also have a related table (see below) with totals for each precinct by candidate.
Calculations and charting isn't built into Story Maps, but you can embed other applications that include such capabilities. I'd suggest taking a look at operations dashboard or the charting and summary widgets in web app builder.
