The Full 136 Year History of the Six Nations - Visualisation

I've been at it again.

I've produced a new Visualisation that covers the full 136 Year history of the Six Nations / Five Nations / Home Nations Championship (from 1883!)

The Aim:
Produce a visual that could stand as a poster, providing detail of winners of the major trophies and successful eras of teams. Whilst also providing added interactivity to the online version, giving detail of matches and more nation specific annotations.

I also wanted to try and go away from your traditional sports viz and do something less dashboard-like and more data-art.

Check out the interactive version here:


I've tried to pick out key moments in the championship, wish I had more time to add more comments to the individual nation views.

Did you know that BOTH England and France have been expelled from the Championship!?

Congratulations, Sam. That's a great piece of work.

"I've been at it again". That's the first I have seen; are there others in which people on here like me might be interested?

Blimey, that's some piece of work! Don't think my phone is doing it justice, will have to crank up the laptop. Thanks.

Thanks both of you!

Alan, I posted on this site a few weeks ago, which was a Match / Player Stats / Team Stats series of dashboards, that are monitoring this years premiership. I'll be due to update it after this weekend, so I'll probably post again, as long as people don't mind.

There is a permanent link on the Bath board now to the dashboards.

For those wondering what the Six Nations poster is, but don't want to link to find out:

It is interactive, so do click and have more of a poke around if you feel inquisitive!
