Blogroll: Randal Olson

Randal Olson always has something interesting to say about data visualisation. He’s now running a series of posts on visualising the evolution of chess, as the result of data mining a large repository of games. Randal has looked at match lengths and outcomes and at opening moves by white and black (one of his many plots is shown below). Anyone interested in chess and/or data visualisation should certainly take a look!
