The 1988 district election results: Scottish voting composition tetrahedron.

910 wards drawn as wireframe tetrahedrons whose volume is in proportion to the total vote are projected inside the large equilateral tetrahedron showing four-party voting composition in Scotland (Botchel J.M. & Denver D.T., 1988), eight different views are shown software by author on an Archimedes computer and Ace Computing.

These images of the four-party pattern of Scottish local voting show signs of an interesting structure. The centre of the tetrahedron is generally avoided and wards tend to cluster along the SNP/Labour and Labour/Conservative axis with a still significant Liberal vote. A general rise in support for the SNP can be seen as a ward becomes orientated towards the Labour party.
