Sports Data

April 24th, 2012

Sport provides a wealth of statistics that can either be analysed or visualised to aid discussion and arguments about which team or person is the best within their given sport. The task of collecting sports data can be manual and having a ready source of data will reduce the task to allow more time to be spent on investigating the historical results.

Data Sources




The work by Edward Tufte on sparklines provides an effective way to display large numbers of results and match/game statistics.


The following files show the final leagues table for various European football leagues and a sparkline based form guide for the whole season within the table.
