Women's Soccer Visualizations

Post by gxm on Fri Sep 20, 2013 11:04 pm

I've been working with some neat visualization tools, and thanks to nc-soccer.com's data (Thanks Shane!), I put together a couple of visuals for women's soccer - http://soccer.moulliet.com/

Right now there's one for showing the games results of the top 100 (64, 40, 25) teams, and another for showing RPI element contributions for any team. Historical data too. Data gets updated every day at midnight.

If you have anything you'd like to see, let me know Smile

Fun to play with. Thanks.

You might want to consider a time lapse of how a team's RPI changes week to week.

One other suggestion. Those of us who are Red-Green color blind have a hard time distinguishing between the red and green lines. Any chance you could change one of them to blue or some other color that would be easier for us to see? Thanks!

Good idea, A_Fan. I changed the colors to (hopefully) be more color blind friendly, and after reading up on it, also added dashes so that color isn't the only differentiator.

Sounds interesting Geez. What do you think that time lapse would look like?

Thanks for taking care of the genetically challenged folks.... he no doubt has great night vision.

One time lapse i viewed recently on protests around the world here is instructive.

im not sure how you would set it up, but i guess the circles would have to be relatively  fixed over the season, with their sizes varied and new ones added. and I guess to make it flow, there would have to be some blending frame to frame.

But part of why i mentioned it is that i don't really have a sense of how RPI changes over a season.

the Protest one I linked to  really brings home the change. i was hoping an RPI one would as well.

and here's one that seems to show that folks in Oregon don't much like getting up to go to work.

Thanks for the change, it makes it much easier to follow for those of us with special visual acuity.

I played around with trying to make a time lapse feature for rpi, and it felt pretty klunky, so I took a different route, using a line chart over the course of the season. If you click on a conference, it will highlight all the teams in thta conference on the graph. If you hover over a team in the table, it will highlight them in the graph.
http://soccer.moulliet.com/rpiParallel.html

The prediction column is based on the WLT percentages listed here - https://sites.google.com/site/rpifordivisioniwomenssoccer/rpi-measuring-the-correlation-between-teams-ratings-and-their-performance
The algorithm runs 500 simulations, and then averages those.

I used a color scheme that should (hopefully) be RG color blind friendly Smile

Let me know what you think.
