Further Experiments with the Brandwatch API...

YES/NO conversations in the run up to the 2014 Scottish Independence Referendum

Following my surprisingly successful attempt to predict the 2014 European Elections, below are a few representations of the data I'm currently tracking on the upcoming Scottish Referendum. All data is extracted from a (rather complex) query running in the Brandwatch analytics app. Further explanation of the logic is in the text below.

To access the data yourself, the files are here:

My gather script further refines these files into the following CSVs (which power the graphs below). Read on for explanations of the break down.
