Soccerbars by Ulrik Brandes and colleagues

Our member Ulrik Brandes from the ETH Zurich, together with Bobo Nick (while at the University of Konstanz), discussions with David Schoch (The University of Manchester), and prototyping with Lukas Knoflach (TU Graz), have published their new work on soccarbars.



The idea of soccerbars is to augment tables and reports by integrating the actual results, in sequence, as data words.

Similar micro-​visualizations have been proposed before (see links below), but soccerbars represent a unique compromise between level of detail, simplicity, and visual effectiveness.

You can find more details on the project page.
