Wimbledon 2013 Data Visualisations

How many ways can a single data set be visualised?

This is the question I asked myself when faced with a spreadsheet of match results from tennis-data.co.uk.

Start with questions such as: Who won? What were the surprises? Who were the heroes? Who were the losers?

What's the best way to present the data? Bar chart, pie charts, scatter plot? Something new and innovative?

Are we presenting the data? Persuading? Encouraging exploration?

Truth and/or beauty?

All the visualisations are built by Peter Cook of Animated Data.
