EDIT: Most of the app is completed. Now all I have to complete is implementation of FIDE arbiters, a dynamic 3d plot (right now it only has 3 variables being plotted, no inputs affect it), adding more FIDE data (based on months) and perhaps including USCF chess data (I have the latest data set for all of the states).
I have made 3 adjustments to this post.
1.Include a dynamic time series chart that lets you see more than one player at a time: This was very time consuming to produce!.
2.Include an overlayed histogram/density curve.
3.Include 3d scatterplot
4.Improve the layout of the app
FIDE CHESS APPLICATION
Other than an interactive chess board itself (which would be a different animal in itself), what can I add to this application to improve upon visualizing and summarizing aggregated FIDE chess statistics? I am planning also to add a time series plot and a motion chart for aggregated historical data.
After I have completed it, I will put up the source code onto github/mediafire for those who are interested in the programming aspect of this. I will also eventually find a place to host this application so that you may use at your leisure.
Here is a picture of the application itself. The left side has filters that effect the output on the right side.
Here are a few images of features I have put in it.
Key for graphs below:
The first graph is an interactive map that outputs the number of FIDE rated players for each country and plots it onto a map.
The second graph is a normalized histogram, or density curve describing the FIDE ratings distribution.
Similiar to the map, this is a barplot of the number players in each country
The globe is the map, but a more appealing version of the map.
Ideally, I will be able to include a 2D/3D time series plot, unsure if it will be possible given how the datasets are structured. I would plot aggregated chess statistics of the FIDE chess population or of individual players here.
A google motion chart, similar to a time series plot, but more interactive and visually appealing. As with the time series plot, I would plot aggregated chess statistics of the FIDE chess population or of individual players here.
Scatterplot of 3 variables
Is there anything else I can add to further visual FIDE chess data? Also, making suggestions to further improve upon what I have would be good too.
