Data visualisations are all the rage and have been so for quite some time. With the enormous amounts of data available from platforms such as Twitter it’s easy to see why the visual nature of data representation is so popular.
Even Formula 1 could be trying to get in on the act, as Martin Whitmarsh, the head of the McLaren Formula 1 racing team, recently spoke about the masses of data used in Formula 1 and how that could be represented online. “Formula 1 is a world sport and it is data-rich, and in this digital arena we can populate this digital environment with much more data and information than tennis, soccer or any other sport, so I think it is a huge opportunity that we have,” he said.
A great source of data visualisations is the Guardian.co.uk which has its own section dedicated to data.
