Interactive displays are increasing being used to convey information, and are a significant factor in promoting statistical literacy (and illiteracy). Durham University and the House of Commons Library are collaborating to create data visualisations (DV) which will be accessible to politicians, researchers and journalists. The focus of this paper is a DV designed to be useful in the run-up to the 2015 general election. The aim was to assemble a rich resource from multiple sources, and to make it easy for target groups to manipulate data and draw conclusions. We identify important changes to the DV as it evolved over 13 iterations, and draw conclusions about appropriate design processes and validation.
