Sports data visualization


This project is concerned with the visualization of sport data, and especially football data. Currently, only 90 matches from the Bundesliga 2 in 2007-2008 are available. The data is provided by Opta, an English company specialized in gathering sport data. Opta is not a formal participant in this project, but they promised to provide feedback on request. Also, they have means to provide feedback from domain experts. The main target of the project is to make the data in the datasets accessible via suitable interactive visualizations. The target audience for the visualizations will initially be football enthusiasts.
