Data Visualisation: Football Related Arrests

Here’s a data visualisation I put together  to see what I could do with some of the recently released  government data.

Must credit David McCandless, whose blog Information is Beautiful has provided the inspiration and heavily influenced the look and feel of this design. If you find this interesting his work will blow your mind. I’ll try to be more original in future efforts. Also the Guardian Datablog is an excellent source of both data, ideas, and visualisations.

The data for this is also available.

  1. awesome work… that’s really nicely done. what tools did you use?

    the link for the data didn’t work for me though, maybe the document isn’t public?

  3. Thanks, I think I’ve sorted out the Google docs settings so it should work, but let me know if you’re still having issues.

    I used Adobe Illustrator CS4 to put it together pretty much completely by hand. I’m not great with illustrator to be honest but it’s a good way to learn to use it better.
