There are 2559 direct candidates from various parties available for election to the Bundestag. In the context of the Google News Fellowship, I developed various interactive visualizations about the elections together with the Interactive Team of the Berliner Morgenpost. The web-based visualization enables users to obtain further perspectives on all direct candidates. Each candidate, represented by a dot, can be sorted and compared according to profession, origin, age or political closeness. Invisible underlying Structures are made visible through visualization. The application is based on the Federal Election Commissioner's data on all approved candidates.
