Abstract

Electoral patterns represent the interaction of three entities: the electorate, elections and place. These entities are referred to as the independent, dependent and geographic variables, respectively. Interactions between these three entities produce voting behaviour, electoral context profile and constituencies. Geovizualization technology enables the analysis of electoral patterns and their spatial and temporal variations. Therefore, a data model has been created in GIS to enable the integration of different types of data in one dataset, as well as modelling these data in order to analyse the above mentioned interactions. The geovizualization model is linked to the data model and supports it by visualizing informations in map form. On the basis of data modelling, the analysis of certain socio-economic features of Croatian social standard, as well as the results and turnout in the 2000-2011 parliamentary elections, four electoral patterns were formed. They point out the features of voters' profile as well as areas of long-term support, which enhances the understanding of election process.
