The method visualizes geographical and/or administrative dependencies of abnormalities.
This original visualization method was proposed by Azat Gabdulvaleev (Russia). It combines the usual scatter-plot of results with the linear representation of the geographical/administrative hierarchy of PECs.
Each dot represents a precinct election commission (PEC). The PECs are grouped by higher subdivisions, e.g. district or territorial commissions (DECs or TECs), and are placed along the X-axis in the ascending order of their numbers/names. In their turn, TECs groups are placed in the ascending order of their numbers/names too. The alignment reflects geographical proximity of corresponding constituencies and administrative submission of the electoral committees. On the Y-axis, you can plot electoral results of your choice.
To visualize the administrative submission of the PECs, you can use different types of colour coding.
