India Election 2009 : Analysing the Analysis!

Indian elections are over and results are out.Yesterday all the top TV channels of India had a field day.
As political parties settle down to analyze the gains and loses ,here's quick thoughts on the election results show by TV channels.
Clearly NDTV and CNN-IBN did a great job.
What really impressed me was the TOUCH SCREENs used by both the channels to analyze state by state position.
According to me , NDTVs graphics and touch screen analysis scored a shade higher than CNN-IBN.While NDTV had its complete team of Prannoy Roy,Burkha,Vishnu with elite panel CNN-IBN pulled it off with its ever star performers Rajdeep and Karan Thapar.

Definitely the data presentation took care of several aspects like : key information communication,visually pleasing graphics,data stratification,good legends,no data overload.
Its not just celebration time for Congress,this time pollsters too have reasons to celebrate as their predictions of UPA victory came true.
