D5 graphs available

Thursday, September 29th, 2011

Apologies for the delay in releasing maps and graphs for Diamond 5. They are on the Diamond Statistics page along with all other result data. You can always visit the Statistics Portal for previous round results after they move off the front page.

More statistics views

Sunday, July 18th, 2010

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.

Graphic fixes

Tuesday, February 2nd, 2010

Last night while updating the match visualization graphs for Day 1, we noticed an incorrect ordering of Candidates for Groups 5 and 14. These errors have now been fixed. The matchups in Group 5 that took place yesterday were correct, so we are properly on track. We apologize, though, if the graphics had thrown off your anticipation for a particular match day.

Much thanks to melange for taking the time to design, update, and repair all the match visualizations. Also on the front page, we welcome back amdrag as a contributor for our featured match previews.

Extra banners and buttons

We’re grateful to our Community for contributing promotional graphics, including the banners you see rotating on the main page and “button-sized” banners for use in blogs or social networking profiles.
