The Times — World Cup
Data visualization for The Times in London, focusing on the 2010 World Cup. Detailed data of plays and positions were aggregated across teams and players, with the goal of creating "at a glance" graphics, telling an instant story about the cup as a whole.
Custom software analyzed shots, passes, and tackles across players and teams, generating hundreds of heatmap graphics mapping these plays across the football pitch.
Four of the graphics were printed in Monday July 19th's edition of The Times.
A republished version of the 3D visualization is available here.
