RE: Week 13: How they close to win
I really liked this visualization. It used distance on a fixed axis to represent distance behind the leader of an olympic event. This direct correspondence with one of the most efficient visual encodings worked really well. I liked their use of drawings of the sport with names to help me see both what event it was and what athlete was competing. I agree with both of the above posts. The fixed Y axis proved to be a bit tricky for most of the speed skating events because I couldn't see the participants. However, it was nice for all of the other events because my brain could get accustomed to a particular position on the graph corresponding to an absolute distance. All in all a great visualization!
