More statistics views

The capability to view previous cumulative round data on the main Statistics page is now available. Use the drop-down menu or the “previous” and “next” buttons to navigate through the rounds and track a Contestant’s progress since Aquamarine 1.

JavaScript is the primary engine for the selector (as with almost all other sections of the site); because of the amount of data involved, the processing may take up to a whole second or two when you switch rounds. Please be patient, but please comment here if you encounter bugs or excessively long wait times.

In addition, our staffer melange has been experimenting with new ways to depict the statistics (space opera) map. Using a Java-based language called Processing, he has been able to generate maps much more efficiently and accurately, thus also able to develop custom applications for statistics viewing.

Two applications, still in a beta phase, are available for preview:
1.) Dynamic Map Viewer
2.) Contestant Comparison Tool
Note, your browser must have the Java plug-in to run these applications.

We hope you find these new features useful and interesting.

      Press ‘x’ when you’re in the Java Console, which clears the classloader cache. Then you can refresh your browser, and the applet should appear.

      Strangely that issue has been happening more often in Firefox than in IE or Chrome for me. I’m not sure what browser you’re primarily using.
