Comments accompanying link Each "worm" in this image shows the evolution of a different research area. Each level corresponds to the papers published in a particular year (1993 at the bottom 2004 at the top). Edges indicate citations papers in one research area in a particular year to papers in another research area. The thickness of each worm segment indicates the number of papers published in the corresponding year in that research area. Worms lean and bend towards each other when they are strongly coupled (there are many citations between them), otherwise they bend apart.

I've been messing around with tableau a little recently just for fun. I like that you can make live filters so anyone viewing the chart can change what they want to see. A couple of things I've made:

A scatter plot with every game the San Antonio Spurs have played in the NBA. Bonus, in the upper left it gives high level stats for the games that are selected:

https://public.tableau.com/shared/T5...play_count=yes

A graph of soccer substitutions and how they vary by league and team. For those that aren't aware, you are only allowed 3 substitutions per game in soccer. Some coaches have a habit of of holding on to them until late in the game, some are more willing to use them earlier. For example, in Germany coaches are 50% more likely to use a sub at halftime than any other league I looked at.

I played around a bit with the soccer substitutions one a bit. Cool.

I'm interested to see how this changes for ATL this year. I imagine the substitution pattern may change meaningfully between having a new coach, playing in the CCL, and having a compressed schedule with more midweek games.

I've never used Tableau, but I'm intrigued. I have a geographic data set I'd like to put up.

What did you use? Tableau Public?
