When Simon, Spencer and James asked me earlier this year if I could join the #sportsvizsunday team as a guest host for one of the upcoming months I was very honored, and my answer was of course ‘yes’. I have followed this initiative since it was established, and it has always been fun to work with datasets on various sports in or beside the monthly challenges throughout the year. I have always used these challenges as opportunities to learn new techniques and chart types.
Scoring-Models are something like a Swiss Army Knife in decision-making and you can use them on almost unlimited occasions. They are models in which various criteria are weighted and result in a score. Based on this score a conclusion or a decision can be made or an advice can be given.
They follow a very structured setup:
- Define criteria
- Weight criteria
- Assess alternatives based on the defined criteria (e. g. on a scale from 1-10)
- Calculate part-scores ( 2. x 3. )
- Calculate overall score ( ∑ 4. )
For this week’s #workoutwednesday challenge I recreated a viz by Rody Zakovich (click to play with the interactive version on Tableau Public).
When I did this week’s #workoutwednesday challenge, I learned how to use the Index-Formula to filter measures within a view to create the BANs in my viz (click the image to play with the interactive version on Tableau Public). Probably not too spectacular to many of you.
Last week I wrote about how to create bounding boxes in Tableau. In my most recent visualization I used them to create a custom zoom control for multiple maps. Click the dashboard to play with the interactive version on Tableau Public.
For #makeovermonday week 34 I created a viz that is showing fatalities of crisis in Africa and Asia (click the image).
Some weeks ago this Tweet by Rody Zakovich caught my eyes:

Five minutes before showtime, we were already waiting behind the huge stage of the ICC Auditorium for the grand #IronVizEurope final to start. I was taking a deep breath and Jade Le Van asked me: “Are you ok?“. I said “Yes, I am. But why am I doing this?” And she answered: “You are pushing your limits.”
Some of you may have seen the #IronVizEurope grand final, where trapezium tile maps (Neil Richards labeled them this way and I quite liked it) for Europe played a significant part in my winning viz on the Big Mac Index.
