Visualising the 2015/16 Eredivisie fixtures

Eredivisie fixture map 2015-16

The 2015/16 Eredivisie fixtures were released over the weekend, so If you haven’t seen this before, what I’ve done is taken an average of leading bookmakers’ title odds (as a proxy for each club’s “strength”) and then divided the clubs four categories based on the bookies’ implied ranking. The categories aim to divide the clubs into four relatively equal-sized groups based on the range of odds they

Bundesliga fixture map 2015-16

There’s been a lot of interest in the German versions of my scatter graphics, so I thought it was only fair to repay that enthusiasm with a version of my fixture difficulty visualisation to coincide with the release of the Bundesliga schedule today.

Visualising the 2015/16 fixtures

CH e361 final

Now that the fixtures have been released for the top four English divisions, I thought I’d crank out updated versions of my fixture difficulty visualisations. The idea behind these is to categorise each club’s fixtures by the strength of their opponent to pick out particularly easy or tricky runs of games over the season. I’ve simplified things slightly this year: rather than

While I’m really happy that the scatter graphics I’ve been churning out for the past four years continue to be so well-received, I’ve long wished for them to look a bit prettier. During last season, @bootifulgame and I produced an experimental interactive version which looked much nicer and used striped “contours” to better distinguish which teams were performing better than others. It’s
