Visualisation

Bringing data to a new audience

Opta are committed to bringing data and statistics to a wider audience.  We believe that it is too important to be left to boring tables and reams of numbers.

Effective data visualisation is a key part of making data more accessible and widening its reach.  

Our data is collected and packaged in such a way that it makes it easy for our media and broadcast customers to present the information in an engaging and information way.

Adding context & colour to traditional coverage

For our print customers, our detailed data can add context to a moment, a match or a season.  Using infographics, player touchmaps, pass matrices and goal build-up images, it is possible to add colour and context to a traditional match report or season-to-date review.

Creating eye-catching visualisations

Our widgets can help to easily add cutting edge performance visualisation to any website.  From player heat-maps to match timelines, representing the data in an eye-catching way is the best way to maximise the impact of your online coverage.
